Triple Screens w/ GTX 560ti

Hi everyone,

Right now I'm running two monitors on my GTX 560ti: one is 1920x1080, and the other 1280x1024. I've been told the card can only support two monitors @ 1920x1080, so, if that is the case, is it possible to have a third monitor running @ 1280x1024 connected? It would make my setup look symmetrical, too. :p 

Thanks!

The 560 ti can only support 2 screens, regardless of resolution. Im not sure if a second one would allow you to run more. Running Nvidia surround like this though would require lower settings as they would not have enough power to run 3 screens on highest settings.

You could run the other one off of the IGP if your CPU has one.

Sorry, what's an IGP?
My CPU is an AMD Phenom II x6 BE

Integrated Graphics Processor....

Like the Intel HD 3000, 4000, etc.

Does your board have video outputs?

My board (Asus Crosshair IV) does not have integrated graphics. D:
So would the only way be to SLI another graphics card? (Although burgies makes it sound like that may not work)

I dont have experience using cards in SLI, but i remember reading that when you do have two cards running, you use the outputs of the first card. So im not sure if having a second card will open the option for more screens or if it simply improves performance of the current number of outputs.

Ah okay. My card has other outputs, they just don't work with more than two...although seeing as it now has more power, I would hope more of the outputs would be "activated."
