    Hello everyone, Im pretty much new here and is liking this forum alot. :D

    Recently I Found out I had a NEC 1970GX put away in a closet. :)

    Currently I have an 1080P eMachines, is it smart to hook it up as dual monitors in Extended mode, and would the pixel differences (1024 vs. 1080) distort the image?

    Finally, Would my 8600GT be enough and not stutter/crash?

    Thanks Alot everyone.

    I`m using extended mode for one 24" monitor (1920x1200) and one 32" TV(1920x1080) both work at native res. You could choose how to lineup the monitors at top or at bottom because of different high (1200vs1080).
    Timonthy says thanks.

    you should have no problem running 2 monitors of difference makes and res's. i had a 1280x1024 hooked up next to my 24" 1080p and my 30" 2560x1600 or whatnot, with no issues
