I only plan on gaming on one monitor, really. Right now, my third monitor is my TV on the other side of the room so gaming on all three wouldn't be easily done so using the two monitors on my desk would result in the bezels in the middle splitting up the action in the center of the remaining collective screens.
To make sure I understand it all:
1. While gaming, my maximum available screens is based on the total number of screens one card is capable of using (2 without DP, 3 with DP)?
2. When I'm NOT gaming, I have a max of 6 screens via DVIx4+DPx2?
Ultimately, I just want to have a 3rd screen for when I'm watching Blu-Ray movies (my Sony TV via HDMI). If I have to get a Display Port adapter to do so, I'm fine with it. I was just curious if when I added a 2nd card, I could bypass that.
