Ok ive just got my self 2 lgips23 monitors and i want to set them up for gaming so they span over two screens. How do i do this? Ive looked in the Nvidia control panel and it doesnt mention any thing about streching it or a resoultion higher than 1080.

go to the Nvcontrol panel, check if there is an option for Nvidia surround. When you select this option higher resolutions should be available on your system. for 2 1920*1080 monitors the res should be 3840*1080.

Nope, its possible to run surround with one gpu like a gtx 680, all 600 series support single card surround I do believe

Can you stretch over 2 screens? Does it not require 3 for surround?

I don't have any experience using Nvidia surround, but I have to question using the feature on two monitors as that would put the bezels squarely in the middle of the game...
