Four monitors on a single PC
Posted on 2006-10-25
Hi, I currently have a PC with a GeForce 7600 card with two 19" monitors off it, with the desktop spanned over both screens.
I want to add another monitor to them (maybe even another two monitors), but the card I have only supports two screens. Is it just a case of buying another graphics card, installing that into the additional PCIe slot (the motherboard is SLI ready) and then setting nview to stretch my desktop over the additional screen(s)? Also, could I add a different sized screen, or will I need to stick to 19"?
Or will I need to sell the 7600 and buy 2 x Nvidia Quatro NVS cards to do this with? Or will I need a single Quatro card that supports 4 screens (these seem expensive so I would prefer using two cards)
I play games sometimes so ideally I would like to keep the 7600 card and add another, but I don't know if this will work?
