Ok, so I would like to run 2 screens. So I get a dual monitor video card right?
But I need 3 minimum. I use Firefox, IE and media resources and I like to keep things separate.
I read somewhere that you get software with all of these cards but can I run 2 dual monitor video cards on the same PC or do I have to get a quad card? Will the software on the 2 x dual cards conflict and how do they work?
Surely using a splitter VGA cable will only clone the signal?
Also I have a Philips 42 flat screen LCD for my main monitor and was hoping to use 2 or 3 15" monitors for other general things. Now, the Philips has 3 VGA sockets on it, 1 for an input, 1 RS232 (looks like any other VGA to me!) a VGA output that clones to go to another screen and 2 red and 2 white VGA connections that are RCA holes (really confused now!) It has a yellow RCA that my X Box plays sound through but I can’t get it to play visual.
I know this is a list of a million questions and goes on for a while but I really don’t understand most of it so any advice would be great.
Ah I see, SLI is when you have 2 video cards installed in the pc. If you could answer these questions for me I should be able to solve it. What is the exact make and model of your video card? Exactly how are they both connected?
Basically, for every port on the video card that you have (most newer ones have 3, vga, dvi and svideo) you can plug a monitor. If you want more than 3 monitors attached it can be done with more than 1 card but it really takes some configuring. Ive come across these which you might want to look into. click here
