Graphics Card Solution for Gaming/Home Office Setup Tags: PC gaming Gaming Graphics Cards Geforce Video Games Last response: June 12, 2008 3:36 PM in Video Games Share creepster June 12, 2008 2:01:28 PM My current specs: Intel Core2Duo CPU overclocked at 1.86GHZ 2GB DDR2 Ram Nvidia GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB I'm looking to use my current GeForce 8600GTS as a secondary card in a 3-LCD (3xSyncmaster 205BW 20" Wide) and 2-card setup. Primarily used for gaming (SecondLife, World of Warcraft) hoping to run at about 3840X1024 resolution, as well as a Home Office. Would I be best off using two identical GeForce 8600 GTS cards? Can anyone suggest a higher end mid-range card as my primary card in such a setup? Cheers, -creep More about : graphics card solution gaming home office setup mi1ez June 12, 2008 3:00:43 PM I don't think 2x8600s will be able to drive all that monitor space for gaming, you'd be better off gaming on one monitor with a more powerful card. Question to all. Can you mix and match GPUs if you have no intention of CF/SLI? ie. keep the 8600 to drive 2 monitors for office apps and get a 8800/9800 for gaming on the third? infornography42 June 12, 2008 3:36:36 PM Yes. You just have to set the one you want to use for gaming as your default graphics. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Setup with three monitors - best graphics card solution?
