    I have this video card, with two monitors hooked up to it with DVI cables. The card also has a mini HDMI port. If I connect an HDTV to that port, what will happen? Will the TV act as a third display, just as the second monitor does? I'd like to know if this will work before I go buy a TV and HDMI cable.

    It generally depends on the chipset.
    EVGA's website says you can use three monitors with this card.

    I'm not sure now, because EVGA responded to me and said only two monitors at a time. I could have all 3 connected, but would have to choose 2 to display in windows.

    Seems like they advertise it supports 3 monitors. What they do not say is that you need SLI for that. :/
    With a single card you can only have two monitors.
    Take a look at that forum.

    It's ok, for my needs, I can simply switch to the third one when needed. I think it will be alright.....Except now I have to figure out if audio will come with that video signal.
