How can I connect two video cards to a Win Server 08 or Win 7 computer so that I can have up to three monitors for my desktop computer?
Do both of these video cards need to be made by the same manufacturer?
Currently I have two different video cards in the Win Server 08/Win 7 desktop computer.
Before I connected the second video card, the primary video card had two monitors connected to it: one DVI monitor and one standard SVGA video monitor.
As soon as I connected the second video card (which has a SVGA, DVI, and HDMI video ports on it--three different ports altogether) my computer stopped recognizing the primary video card and now recognizes only the new second video card that has been put in my computer.
I am hoping to be able to connect three monitors to my desktop computer (two on the primary video card that has the VGA and DVI video ports) and one DVI monitor on the new second video card.
I need all three monitors to work together so that I can scroll between them.
I am hoping to be able to do this without having to buy a Matrox video box (since these video boxes are expensive).
So how can I connect two video cards to a Win Server 08 or Win 7 computer so that I can have up to three monitors for my desktop computer?
