Can a single GTX 560 TI run 3 Monitors (2 being DVI and 1 being Display Port)
And if so, could I run 6 monitors running dual GTX 560 TIs? Now the monitors are just expanding my desktop, not one big monitor. So while gaming it'd still only be on one monitor.

I may be proven wrong, but as far as I know, for the longest time Nvidia cards could only do 2 monitors per card, maybe the 6xx series can do 3 I don't know. If you really need 6 monitors, AMD Radeon cards would be your best bet, they have been able to do 3 monitors per card for many generations now.

Cheerios.

Nvidia did not allow 3 monitors on one card until the 6xx series. On the 5xx you had to have 2 cards to use more than 2 monitors.

Alright, so if I'm running Dual GFX Cards 1 being 560 (2 Monitors) and another being a 6XX (4 Monitors)? Any recommendations?
