HDCP won't be an issue. I back up my DVDs and Blurays to hard disk using Slysoft's AnyDVDHD. I guess the issue is can I run WoW at 5760x1080 (1920x3 by 1080 high) with an additonal monitor running at 1920x1080. I know that I will have to run WoW windowed. Currently I have a DoubleSight 9" USB monitor to watch movies while I play WoW.
It is certainly possible that it will work. When I looked up WoW system requirements, they were not that steep. They essentially recommend a 8800GT…a card that is several years old. So, it may work…just cannot say until you try.
Looked at the card specs again and it has two DVI, one HDMI, and one Display port. I'll have to get a Display port to DVI cable. Thought it had two HDMIs, my fault for not paying more attention.
Easy to confuse the two as they look alike.
I guess an area of concern is the maximum resolusion for the video card is 2560 x 1600 (DL-DVI). However I believe that is for a single monitor.
Yes, that is the resolution for just one of the Dual Link DVI ports. If that was the max resolution for all screens combined on your much newer (and more powerful card), then they would be no way that my 8800GT could drive the two 1920x1200 monitors that I have connected to it…yet it does!
Well, guess I'll find out next week when it all gets here. If it doesn't work, it wouldn't be the first time one purchase caused a spending spree to get everything working the way I wanted.
Buying new toys does tend to lead to buying more and more new toys! Yeah!
