Repost.

3 monitor setup

I have no experience with the 560 but you should be able to just connect the monitors.

Not sure if it will work like AMD's EyeFinity though, if that's what you're looking for.

You'll have to connect the third monitor either by HDMI, or with an HDMI -> DVI adapter. The rest depends on driver support however

I am thinking it may be possible, unfortunately the model you have doesn't have the extra output like some of the 560's.

From what i can see you have a two DVI's and a HDMI/Display Port?

You will need two hooked up by DVI and finally one via the HDMI/Display Port.

If you post your model number, i can give you an idea in more detail.

Hey, So i looked into this for you, and unfortunatly you cannot Run three monitors on that single card. However i did find out that if you purchase another to SLI with, there will be no problem, you will use 3 DVI ports to power 3 monitors.


If your monitors are powered using HDMI then i suggest something like:
DVI-D Male to HDMI Female Adaptor Convertor 24+1 | eBay

The DVI ports on these cards are DVI-I do you can use VGA also:
DVI-I M TO VGA MONITOR F CONVERTER ADAPTOR 15 PIN SVGA - BRAND NEW | eBay

Hope this helps

I believe so yes, from the GTX 650.
