This is the graphics card I currently have. I'm running 2 Acer 23" LED monitors on it through the DVI ports, and I'm wondering if I could add a 3rd monitor though the HDMI port. I'm not looking for the nVidia Surround, just to have 3 separate monitors off one graphics card. Can it be done?

Nope. Only 2 displays per Nvidia GPU. For 3, you need AMD/ATI with Eyefinity support. Or, a second Nvidia GPU to go with the first one.

The 600 series supports 4 so that isnt entirely accurate whereas the 7000 series supports 3.

What about running a monitor off of my mobo, while still maintaining the two off the graphics card?

Depends on the mobo. What make and model are you using?

Bugger. Well, at least now I know what I need to do to get a 3rd monitor.

I've got the same graphics card but a gigabyte z77-UD3H mobo which does support graphics and am trying to display 3 monitors too. I'm running 2 through the nvidia, and trying to run one through the mobo but no luck so far. I went into BIOS and switched the onboard graphics enabling setting from auto to enabled, but that didn't do it. Any thoughts?
