Connect 3 Monitors Together


Iis it possible to connect 3 monitors together to create a multi monitor setup? Don't want to spend the $600+ on 3 screen monitor so i was considering building a set up using 3 independent monitors, however i don't know if it is possible to do this. Essentially my plan is to get a ldc monitor with 3 hdmi slots and connect the other 2 monitors i have with single hdmi to it, then connect the main monitor into my computer for multi monitor use, but i don't want to buy the monitor without first knowing if this plan will even work. Anyone has some knowledge on this?

How To Connect 3 Monitors At The Same Time ?

How to connect 3 monitors at the same time (or how to work with 2 video cards)?. Can i connect another pci-e card and work with 3-4 monitors with no effect on the gaming performance? If so, it's have to be nvidia card or can i connect my old x800gtox1050 ?

My current system is:

Connect Two Monitors To Computer

How to connect two monitors to a computer? I bought a ati video card and a new monitor. I connected my main monitor to the ati video card, and the second monitor to the crappy on-board video card monitor slot. The computer doesn't recognize the 2nd monitor which is connected to the crappy on-board video card monitor slot. What am i supposed to do? Am i not allowed to use that crappy on-board monitor plug? If so do i just buy something that lets me connect two monitors?

How Do You Connect Your Active Sub To Your Active Monitors ?

Currently my setup consists of my m-audio audiophile 2496's analog rca outs to the main swan m200mkii. The speaker out of the main monitor then goes to my yamaha sub via the speaker level input, then the speaker level output goes to the other swan monitor. I have the yamaha set to 80hz cutoff and so far it sounds great. Anyone else have their active sub connected to their monitors differently?

Are Studio Monitors Right For Me ?

My pc speakers are dieing so i'm looking for $200-$300 replacements. I want 2 self-powered speakers that sound good without a separate sub. I'll use them for listening to punk rock music for like 10 hours a day while i work at my desk, no games. Many of the self powered speakers in this range call themselves "studio monitors". I've been led to believe that studio monitors have a specific purpose and that the average consumer shouldn't consider them, is this correct? Do i really have to get a receiver and bookshelf speakers to get better music quality than pc speakers?

Getting Eyefinity With Two Monitors

I've got two monitors, stupid company left one out when they shipped it. I didn't get charged but anyways, i might get a 3rd or i might not. My question is:

How is eyefinity with two monitors? Does it even work? Shouldn't bother with it?
I'll probably just end up getting another monitor anyways though.

Best Setup For Three Monitors

I am looking to do a new build and need some advice on video cards. I want to run three 27-28" monitors on this system, and i would like to be able to run each display independently for work plus i would like to run them together as one large screen for gaming. I have seen several videos of people playing crysis, wow, etc and the three screens looks cool. My question is what would be the best setup for this? I had thought about 3 gtx 260's or 3 gtx 275's, but are three cards really necessary?

Would i be better off with just 2 cards like 2 gtx 285's?

Also, when it comes to memory should i go for a larger card, like the gtx 285 comes in a 1gb or 2gb card?

Three Monitors On Windows 7

What's the best way to finagle having three monitors on windows 7? I'm currently running a gtx260 on a ga-ep45-ud3p. Assuming that i need a second video card, how is gaming performance affected? Does the other gpu just take over when i drag a window between displays? What are the concerns?

Use 3 Monitors With 4350

I tried googling and came up dry, but was wondering can you use 3 monitors on this video card. http://www.Newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=n82e16814125251

It has vga, dvi and hdmi out, was hoping to use all 3 outputs to hook up 3 monitors, i know with older s-video out that worked but guessing cause the tv chip itself controlled the output, and with these the gpu does all the work, so only 2 can be enabled at once. If anyone knows of a hack or anything to get this to work that would be great, just being used for 2d stuff, office use, doesn't take much power at all to do. Resolutions are 1920x1080 and 2 1280x1024, the 1080 one has hdmi input on it.

Switch Between Two Monitors

I have a 9600 pro, one lcd monitor utilizing the dvi jack and a tv that has a dsub input on it. Both are working fine but i am trying to set them up where i can switch between the two without having to unplug one, reset the configuration and plug the other in. They both work in dual screen mode however when i use the tv for online racing (which is the only time i use the tv as a monitor) the game has crashed three times and ccc pops up. Once i unplug the lcd monitor and use the tv by itself there are no problems. There has got to be a way to turn on off and turn the other on. I can disable the secondary but not the primary. I have probably made this as clear as mud.

Ancient Monitors

I just wondered who else out there is running a plain ancient monitor i am running a compupartner 1992 edition monitor and it weighs about 80 pounds. Lol but i have never been better. Ive looked at brand new crts and well i have to say id stick with this one it has really nice and bright colors there is only a couple downsides and that is resolution if i go over 800x600 its all still bearable but text is kinda blurry. And every once and awhile(especially if i move it) i gotta bang on tht top of it to get it out of its fuzzy mode thing it does. Lol well i guess well see how long this thing can keep going. Lol

So does anyone else have a super old monitor like mine?

Using Two Monitors Windows Xp

I have two monitors going for the first time and my question is on the secondary monitor. Should there be a windows task bar? More importantly, can there be a windows task bar?

I may be confusing the terms cloning, mirroring, etc. But as it is now, the two monitors combined actually form an extended desktop of computer #1. I can drag and drop items between the two. Is this as good as it gets? Or can i actually give the second monitor commands to grab a website like cnet and the other monitor grab a website like cookinglight? Again i would need windows to do that, right?

Not sure if it is important:
#1 is samsung flat screen 24" dvi-d single
#2 is sony crt 21" vga to dvi converter
To a nividia geforce pci card second port

Connecting Two Monitors

I have a laptop and a desk top and would like to have both monitors connected to drag the screens across. Ideally, i would like to work on my desk top and laptop simultaneously as my laptop has a program that i cant move to the desktop, but it is more comfortable using the desktop. I am pretty sure this is not possible, and i feel like the only option is to connect the desktop monitor to my laptop. So can someone provide advice or instruction on how to do this?

Question About Using 3 Monitors And 3 Gpus

I am unsure about how such a setup works:

I have 3 monitors, a 26" lcd, a 42" hdtv both connected on a gtx 280 and a 8400gs connected to a 15" side monitor. Besides applications that let you choose which video card to use, is there any way to determine which video card is the one being used? If something is dragged to the side monitor, will that gpu kick in for that application?

Basically my question is: is it possible to render something using the gtx while outputting to a monitor not directly connected to it?
