Hello,
I have three 1080p monitors on a 670 this is working great most games on high a few on max not bad for a single card. The question is for games that I still play at 1080p on the center monitor it just turnes off the laft and right monitor so I cannot put anything on them like CPU GPU widgets team speak to see whos talking ect. So will puting the 4th non gpu rendered monitor on to put all this info on effect the game play by much or any at all? I have googled around and found all of squat soooo any Ideas. I would just go do it but I need to get an HDMI cable and a hdmi to dvi cable to hook it up..

so are you saying you are going to hook it up to the onboard graphics? i am confused as to how you are going to accomplish the fourth monitor...and it shouldnt have any issues with causing games to slow down..you are not rendering the game on that monitor still the same 1 monitor at 1080p so it will have basically no effect

I have a 4 monitor setup with a 680 and the 4th monitor has no effect on game play what so ever.

^^ Derza10 do you have all 4 monitors hooked up to the 680? or are you using a combo of integrated (intel HD) and 680?

Ok cool and Drums this is all on 1 card not using onboard at all. How about playing a movie while playing a game you tried that?

that will cause performance to suffer it takes some gpu muscle to play videos (especially) HD movies. I would not recommend you do that...also why would you do that? haha is the game that boring that you need to put a movie on also?

Well The 4th monitor will be above the other 3 and other people could watch the movie and I could off and on while farming and such durring D3 more just a question than likely to actually do it ...
