    HD7970 together with GTX580 possible?

    I am currently using HD7970. running 3 monitors.
    and that's fine.

    but then, I recently received a new 27" ASUS 3D Monitor, that's Nvidia 3D ready with shutter glasses.

    I would like to enable the 3D monitor and Glasses, just fun and gimmicky.

    now my question is. I have an existing GTX580 just sitting there.

    can I plug the Nvidia GTX580 into the second PCI-e slot, change one of the Monitor output for one of my three screens to be from the GTX580, and still have the desktop extended?

    will things be compatible?
    any potential issues?

    I am running win7 64 bits.
    and using Rampage IV Extreme.

    Please share!

    Umm I'm not 100% sure but I'd eat my hat!

    Reminds me of stuff my old school vicar used to come out with...... Isiah 11:6

    The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and Nvidia GPUs will work side by side with AMD

    alright, worth a try then.
    If it does, I think I will be quite psyched.

    anyone else with any experience here, please share too!!

    Interesting question... I found some older setups working with ATI and NVidia cards together, but no info about RIVE and HD7970+GTX580...

    Also found that there is a chip dedicated to this (Lucid Hydra)... but that's only on the Crosshair IV Extreme...

    If you give a try, definitely post back with your experience!

    it works. like a charm.

    nothing else required.

    now I can watch Nvidia 3d on my main, and my AMD controls the other 2 screens, and everything is extendable inbetween!

    Well, Arne... I think we could forgive you if you change your mind... But if you're going to do that, please, record it!

    Just joking... everyone can make assumptions too fast... as I did it recently too...
