I currently have two NVIDIA GTX 690 graphics cards, running 3 monitors in surround in windows 7 across the desktop. All 3 monitors are connected via DVI, 2 in 1 card and 1 in the other.
Various research and forums say you can also connect an accessory display to a 4th monitor, so I thought I would try it. I have this monitor connected also via DVI into an available slot on card 1, or 2, doesn't matter which one. In the NVIDIA control panel, I can see the 4th monitor connected along with my 3 monitors in surround, but as you can only have a maximum of 3 monitors in surround with NVIDIA, I cannot "see" anything on the 4th monitor (accessory display) even though I see it in the NVIDIA control panel.
I am currently using MS FSX with a whole bunch of add-ons, accross the 3 monitors and was hoping I could use the 4th as a panel for instrumentation.
Does anyone have any experience setting up the accessory display monitor ? and maybe able to shed some light on this ?
This would give you an idea of how the accessory display would look that somone else has done, just I cannot find out how to do it for mine:
I'm doing the same with 2xSLI GTX770's and I'm currently waiting for an adapter to convert the displayport in back of the videocard to hdmi.
From what I've learned, the accessory screen needs to be plugged into the display port. hope this helps.
