5-monitor setup

Jackriegerattack
Go to solution Solved by AddonCustoms,

4 monitors is the MAX, no matter how to try to add more.

 

You can do what I do, run the 3 surround screens on your main card, and get a cheap second hand 600/700 series card for the other 2 monitors.

I have a single 989ti in my build, and i have five monitors, can i have 3 set up in nvidia surround and the other two normal, or is there a limit on how many monitors you can plug into one card?

A single gtx 9xx card supports up to 4 monitors connected directly, so I'm fairly sure you'd have to use a DP hub or something to get the 5th working.

There is a limit of the number of monitors you can have plugged in, I believe its 4 max.

 

Try buying a curved widescreen monitor and 2 normal monitors, It only uses 3 plugs and the widescreen can be your Nvidia Surround

Wow this was old as heck, Need to update this signature!

can i have my 3 surround monitors plugged onto the gou and the other two plugged into my mobo, or are the mobo display outputs disabled when a gpu is installed?

I believe you can have 4 monitors running off your card for a maximum resolution of 5120x3200.

It should work as long as your integrated video shit is enabled in the bios. (Requires your CPU to have an integrated graphics processor as well)
