    Hello,

    I have a quick question, how would you setup a three monitor setup on a single pc? I am thinking two video cards and a vga splitter? or just having two cards with 2 interfaces on each. I am thinking of having identical video cards to avoid driver issues maybe? I've setup dual monitors using only 1 card in the past.



    Thank you :biggrin

    I used to have a system with 2 x PCI-Express graphics card. One was an XFX 8800GTS (2x DVI Ports) and the other was an XFX 7300GT (2x DVI Ports).

    I ran 2x 19" Widescreen and 1x 17" monitors from it with no problems, works the same way as a dual monitor setup. Just make sure they're both Nvidia and from similar families as then they can use the same driver pack.
