Windows 7: 3 monitor setup

3 monitor setup

I have 2 19inch monitors hooked up to a gigabyte GTS250 PCI card, my question is if I want a third monitor to my setup can I use any graphics card in another PCI port to achieve this, would I have to buy an identical card, or SLI an identical card?

I'm assuming any card will do, just want to see if any one could offer advice.

Thanks in advance

Only if you really wanted too, or you want to go SLI. Other than that something like this,

Asus GeForce G210 SILENT 512MB DDR2 DVI VGA HDMI Out.. | Ebuyer.com

would be more than enough for an extra monitor or two.

Nice one for the link, very cheap and the output resolution is more than enough. Want to hook up a 42" LED TV along side the 2 19" monitors.

Thanks again

How do I access my main monitor if broken in a multi-monitor setup?
I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu. Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
