GTX 560 Non-ti Tri-Monitor

Hello,

I have here a gtx 560 non ti version that a friend gave me, and I was wondering if this can support up to 3 monitors?


The card has 2 DVI's and 1 HDMI, so does that mean I'm set?

I saw online that it doesn't work for the Ti version. But mine is not the Ti version, so will it work? Thanks in advance.

A Ti is a better card, so with that knowledge......

Please post a manufacturers link to your card, we have no idea what you have.

But with 3 outputs that usually means you can hook up 3 monitors, only 1 way to find out. Go to the manufacturers website and read the specs

You can't always go by the number of ports on a GPU card to determine how many monitors it will support. My MSI 7850 has four ports (two DP, one DVI and one HDMI) but only supports three monitors.

I just love it when the specs only say multi-monitor support. The jokers who write those specs should be shot. I'm guessing (note the word guessing) that the card will support only two
monitors.
Whoa! I found this: http://www.nvidia.com/content/geforc...User_Guide.pdf. In it, I found this:

A single GeForce GTX TI graphics card can support up to two displays per card in a multi-monitor configuration.

I have no reason to believe an non-TI card would be any different, especially with the listed maximum resolution. I'm sticking with my original guess.

agreed Jean, my 980 Ti has 5 outputs but only supports 4 monitors, if I wanted 8 monitors I suppose I could use the ports on the other card

What's so funny about it? That's what a lot of day traders do; you just can't run SLI. Even Eyefinity will support only up to six monitors. Which brings up an interesting anomaly. A card that is Eyefinity compatible and will support up to six monitors may have six miniDisplayPorts or use only two Display Ports out of a total of four ports (the other two being something like a DVI and or HDMI) and two three-port dongles.
