Could i plug in the 8300gs just to show the 3rd screen i dont want a performance increase just the 3rd screen to work but the 8300gs has no sli connector, is this possible or will it no work?

You can use the 8300gs for the 3rd monitor, but you cannot use SLI. For the purpose of an extended desktop, SLI is not needed.

EDIT: This will work with XP and Win 7, but it will not work with Vista.

This could work with vista as well, but you need to find a single driver that works with both cards. Otherwise just download from Nvidia's website the driver it suggests for each card and install them.

They won't act like a single monitor like eyefinity setups, but you will have up to four monitors.
