I am trying to figure out how to use my HDTV and 2 monitors for PC gaming.
I would like the HDTV to be the center display, and the 2 monitors on the side for surround displays (for simulator games). The HDTV only has Component, and HDMI 1.1 for high rez input.
I thought i can hook up all three of them because my video card 7600GT has all 3 connections coming out. I tried, and the drivers said only 2 can be on at once
The 2nd problem is that the drivers won't allow the games to span from the monitor to the component, which ruins the multimonitor gaming part.
According to the nvidia forums i briefly browsed, even with DUAL LINK dual video cards in a system, it STILL only allows 2 screens even though there are physically 6 video connections and 4 hardware video output chips. :/
Looking at the matrox triplehead2go (REALLY expensive) that one outputs in vga or dvi, but i would require hdmi 1.1 or component for one of the connections.
Is there any way to get triple screen gaming with a HDTV in the middle?
