Dual Monitors - Different Resolutions

Hey gang,


I'm planning to buy a new monitor at Christmas and I was wondering how it would work if both monitors are different resolutions. I am looking to buy a 1920x1080 monitor but my current one has a maximum resolution of 1680x1050, so I imagine I wouldn't be able to use them both at the same time for gaming as an example but could I use them both at the same time to game on one and have windows running on the other. Lastly do I need anything special for this or is it simply individual cables from my GPU into both monitors?

  1. I do that it works fine. You have to have 3 monitors anyways for eyefinity.
  2. I figure i may aswell ask here instead of creating a new thread, does this PSU seem like it'll hold up to a system like this:

    MOBO: Biostar GF8100M2+ SE
    CPU: AMD 630 x4 @2.8GHz
    RAM: 2x2GB DDR2
    GPU: MSI 7850 2GB
    HDD 1: 1TB 7200RPM
    HDD 2: 500GB 7200RPM
    DvD Drive
    PSU:Corsair VX550
    Monitor 1: 22" 1680x1050
    Monitor 2: 24" 1920x1080


    No plans for overclocking the card, if that should effect the PSU resources.
  3. yeah that looks fine.
