Hi there,

I'm looking at upgrading to a triple monitor setup but I'm having no luck finding much info about it, so thought you guys and girls could perhaps help?

I'd like to know what kind of hardware I'd need to do this?

I'd like to have one main screen (48" @ 1920x1200) above two 24" (1920x1200) screens, in a square basically.

They would have to be able to show *independent* images at the same time (i.e. not mirroring each other).

I would expect to have either an nVidia GTX 260 graphics card, or possibly two in SLI.

Is it possible to have three independent screens just with that one/two graphics cards, or would I need to look at getting some kind of splitter (like Matrox's "Triple Head 2 Go")?

Thanks in advance, Ed.

You'd need either: three video cards, or a video card that supports two different monitors, and then a second one that supports either one or two. I'm not aware of any other way to do this. As far as I know, a video card that supports dual monitors is usually somewhat expensive, if they even exist. Make sure you get the right kind of video card; there are different types. Check to see what your current one is.
