Advice on using 1440p and 1080p monitors

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,


Currently, I have 4x 1080p monitors connected to a EVGA 1070 SC.  One monitor being 144Hz and the other three on 75 Hz.


Looking to get the RTX 3080 to game on 1440p @ 144hz.  Looks like i still cannot get support for 5 monitors to one GPU.  


Any recommendations or advice if I can mix and match a 1440 @ 144hz monitor with the present 3 monitors?


Thank you all

you can do 4 displays of different resolution, though navigating on them might be a pain

because your cursor can get stuck on corners of the higher resolution display

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general




Products I like:


Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite


Products I hate:


Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares


Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)


be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend


Companies I hate:


Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)


Personal Blacklisted Companies:


Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones


Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

4 monitors shouldn't be a problem with nvidia surround but the reference rtx 3080 design has 3 DP and 1 HDMI output so you might need a bunch of adapters.  I know you can do 4+1 if you have all the same resolutions and daisy chain with displayport but it doesn't sound like that would be possible with your setup. Have you considered getting an intel NUC or something like that and just running a few extra monitors off another computer if you want to use them all? It also might be possible to run all 5 with a dp to 2x HDMI splitter (computer should see the DP as one 3840x1080 monitor) but those are expensive and this whole situation just sounds kinda like a pain in the butt just to get 1 extra 1080p side display.
