I have two spare 17" LCD screens that I would like to have triple screened, one on each side of my main 22". As this would require two GPUs to connect all three screens (am i right? without purchasing one of those expensive adapters) I was wondering if throwing in an old GPU would affect gaming performance. I would only play on the main screen and not stretched over all three. I only want triple screening for productivity programs and normal surfing/music/IM/etc. Would an old 7300/8600 throttle down my 9800gtx from performing at gaming or would it run the 9800gtx at full speed? I understand that SLI would kill the speed of the 9800gtx and bring it down to the other card.
Many thanks in advance!!
What OS are you running?
Windows 7 x64 with latest nVidia drivers.
As long as the game is running off the monitor that is powered by a particular card, you're fine. So if you're gaming on a montior connected to your 9800 GTX, then you'll get its full performance.
Excellent. Thank you!!
