Is a 3 monitor configuration possible?
I have a NVIDIA Ge Force 8800GT dual board that works fine.
Tried to add an ATI board board to my last open PCI slot and it is the
only thing that runs.
Is there a way to run NVIDIA card with two monitors and another card
with an additional monitor???

Thanks much.

It really depends on your motherboard and the PCI slot type.
If it is PCI-e, and your motherboard is compatible with nVidia's SLI
graphics, you should be able to install a second nVidia GeForce 8800GT
(dual head). This would DOUBLE your graphics speed.

It would enable you to use up to 4 monitors (the max for Windows,
AFIK).

In any case, adding a second nVidia GeForce 8800GT will allow you to
use up to four monitors.

MAKE SURE your PowerSupply is a MINIMUM of 650 Watts. Or you simply
won't have the power to run 3 or 4 displays.

You will probably have to add additional power to your cards, also.
Read the manual.
