Wondering if anybody here is using 3 monitors and if so what their motherboard/GPU/OS combination is.
I’m currently using Cubase Studio 5 on Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) on a Asus P5W Deluxe motherboard with NVIDA graphics using two displays - arrangement window on the left and mixer window on the right. I’d like to expand this so I’ve always got a spectrum analyser on the master bus on a separate screen.
I’ve also noticed that with some plug-ins (e.g. - LFO Tool and SPAN) if their GUI is displayed my audio driver starts clipping out but when I look at the performance monitor still looks good… so I guess I’m in the market for a newer graphics card anyway.
Any advice/recommendations welcome.
5 monitors here 4 on two graphic cards & one on the motherboard graphic (see signature)
Using three here, all is fine
thanks for the responses - which ATI Radeon model do you have a couple of and is it using their Eyefinity technology to get you all the way up to five displays? I’ve spotted this one here as an example:
what’s your graphics card set up Split?
it will be better with fanless ! use it like a single card no need “special” thing just instal your two graphic cards & instal latest driver et voila 4 screen !
I cant remember but it (i think) can support 4 monitors through some link thing?
Found it, it was one of these> Graphics cards, GPU and Video Cards for Gaming | AVADirect
But I run my two primary 24" displays form it and the 19" from the on board video. All DVI
I can say that I have a fanny card but when running Cubase the fan is silent as the video is hardly stressed.
I could have 6 monitors if I felt the need with the setup!!!
Thanks fellas - you’ve been very helpful.
So I added a Card today that a friend gave me - completely different make and specs - and they both seem to work in tandem no problem with three monitors… windows even suggested I should add another couple!
