Windows 7: Running 3 monitors on ATI & Nvidia

Running 3 monitors on ATI & Nvidia

Hi All,

Before I upgrade to Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) I wanted to check if this would work...

I just bought a 3rd monitor... I currently have a Nvidia 8800 GT running 2 monitors. I also have a spare ATI Radeon X1900 lying around. I wanted to use this to run the 3rd monitor. I know that this wasn't possible under Vista (my current operating system) but if it was possible under Windows 7, then I would definitely upgrade...

Does anyone know if this would work...? Is it possible to mix 2 video cards like this under Windows 7? I am not a gamer... this would just be for general windows usage.

Many Thanks

Sid

Running two monitors?
How can I run two monitors from one computer? Can I run a VGA and DVI from the motherboard into one video card which has VGA and DMI? Or do I need a dual VGA card?

Running 2 Monitors?
I have often wondered why people run two monitors on a standard type setup. Just thinking of it I think having the split in the middle of what ever I was doing would be a huge negative, especially when playing games :confused:
