Hey, My system is an Intel-I7Core/Win7Ultra. The video card(GTX460) has a single mini HDMI port. For Extended Desktop use; Can I use a single HDMI cable to connect two 22" widescreen HD/LED monitors, i.e. daiseychain? For sound and clutter reasons, I would rather not use the DVI ports and use a single HDMI cable if possible.

Yes, but they will show the same screen.

Thanks for the fast response.
I guess it was missed in the subject line.
I was looking for a solution that would allow "extended desktop" from a single HDMI cable. Thought there might be some type of syncing or blanking technique. Just wishful thinking on my part. Guess I'll do one from the HDMI for audio and the other from one of the two DVI ports. Thanks again.
