Default Can I add a 3rd Monitor with my Setup somehow???

This place has GROWN so much since the last time I've been on!!!



So Right now I have 2 Monitors running (24inch main and 19inch side) With my setup below, is there anyway for me to add another 19inch to it? Splitter cable or something? If I can't, what are the options to allow me to have 3 Monitors? I'm not changing my whole setup for it, but if its not to hard/expensive I may.....



-Windows 7 w/ 64Bit
-Antec 300 Mid Tower w/ 650w Cooler Master Power Supply
-Msi 750a sli platinum motherboard
-Amd athlon 64 x2 5400 @ 2.8ghz stock black edition w/ Xigatek HTD- 120mm rifle cooler heatsink
-Ocz Reaper 4GB of ram
-Wd 500GB Hard Drive
-2 Bfg 9800gt OC Edition in SLI
-Asus Cd/Dvd Burner










Thanks!!!!!

We use the below devices at my work to add a third monitor... it's not going to be handling any high def, but it works.

Why? OP has SLI 9800s.


OP, just go into nvidia control panel, and there is an option somewhere (with the SLI options iirc) that says something along the lines of "enable all displays." It'll allow you to use the DVI ports on your second card to run extra monitors. The downside is that it will also disable SLI, but you can always re-enable it for gaming.
