    Curiosity question here.

    I'm thinking of grabbing a 2nd GTX 570 for SLI - would cost me about $150 new - and having dual monitors would it better to have both monitors on one GPU or have one monitor per GPU?

    My last SLI configuration on GTX 280s I had both monitors on one GPU....I never tried one monitor for each GPU.

    I looked around online and I haven't really found a useful answer. Anyone have any info or first hand experience?

    Anyone else, correct me if I'm wrong.

    But I did not think it matter what output ports you used on either of the graphics cards when using multiple monitors with a SLI config.

    I don't understand how any performance gains would come of it.

    As I said, please correct me if I'm wrong :)
