Windows 7: 4 independent monitors on SLI?

08 May 2012   #1

4 independent monitors on SLI?

I've never tried dual GFX-cards on SLI yet, but i need additional screens atm. so I was wondering:

I currently have a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 560Ti 1GB PhysX CUDA with 4 outputs, however it can only provide 2 simultaneous displays. If I get another one and link them with SLI, will the other provide 2 additional displays or will I just get more power and still only 2 monitors or even 4 with 2 mirrored?

I bet many have tried this so any confirmation of one or the other is much appreciated.

I haven't done it, but I believe that you can drive 4 monitors with 2 cards, but not in SLI.

Can I use dual monitors independent of each other?
I am aware of Ultramon and Display Fusion but what I want to do is this. I'm gaming on Monitor 1 (main) in full screen. I have other programs active on Mon 2 but if I click on anything there, the game will minimize on Mon 1. This is what I would like to avoid. Thanks for any and all help, Ken
