3 displays with nvidia?

Is it possible to have 3 displays with an nvidia card? I suppose there is the hardware limitation of 2 connections, but sli would solve that.

Re: 3 displays with nvidia?

I'm not sure about 2 PCI-Express cards, but I've used 3-4 displays with nVidia cards.  In fact, it's incredibly simple.  Just follow the instructions in nVidia's docs for setting up dual monitors as 2 seperate screens.  However, you'll need more devices and screens.  Of course, my configuration was an AGP 8x GeForce 5200, and some PCI GeForce of an older variety.  As it turns out,  this really wasn't such a productive setup for me, so I don't have a config for you, but feel free to try it anyway!
