    Question about Multi GPU/Displays

    In the past I used a 7800GTX to run two 1920x1200 screens, and a Matrox card running a third 1280x1024 screen, but what I am wondering is in relation to using a pair of 16x PCIe cards that aren't in SLi, just 2 cards in one computer. For example using 2 7800GTX to run 4 screens, does it work? Or must the second card be PCI?

    The next question is if they are both nvidia cards, anybody know how nview handles 4 screens. When I did it, nview only picked up the two detected on the 7800GTX, not the matrox connected screen; not a surprise, but I can imagine it being tricky about using Dualview with more screens than "Dual"!

    Quickly, what's the best passive PCIe card these days? Is it something like the Asus 7600GS?

    Thanks!

    it works as long as there is no SLi mode activated. Best passive card (of the nvidia range) would defo be the 7300LE or even 7600GS as you suggested
