Surround with 1 additional display New drivers say you can do it, but I can't.
When I configure the displays for surround my options are:

Dedicate a GPU to PhysX (one GPU is dedicated to PhysX and can also be used for additional displays)
or
Use all GPUs for Surround (All used for Surround using SLI. You can have one additional display)

Unfortunately when I choose the 2nd option, no matter where I plug my 4th display in it tells me it will NOT be used.

I can get it to work if I choose the first option, but no way am I going to put a 580 to waste just for a 4th display.

Oh yeah, I'm running 3 EVGA 580s in Windows 7 64bit. 301.24 drivers.

This was unfortunately an incorrect statement made on our latest Beta driver release, I too was trying it last night for a few hours. /wallbash.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wallbash:' />

Sorry for the inconvenience

Good to know I wasn't doing something wrong :)

Do you know if this will be an option in a future release?

Not sure at the moment if they do plan on adding this feature.

honestly, I think its bugged, why wouldn't they enable it? they are advertising it everywhere. these are beta for a reason I am guessing... if they take away the feature I will be quite disappointed.

Yea I tried setting my 3d projector in the living room as 4th display, but it's not compatible with surround,
so every time you want to activate all 4 displays they have to be in extended desktop mode, which kinda sucks because you have to go through dances with cymball every time you want to game in the living room.
