DIY8 - Monitor Hookup Advice
on Apr 6, 2011 at 11:34:27 pm

I'm building a DIY8 system with the recommended MOBO and GTX470. I've never had a two-headed system let alone one with a preview monitor before, and I have these questions about how they hook up.

1. Do my two application monitors connect to the GTX's two dual-link DVI ports?

2. And does the HDMI-capable video preview monitor connect to the GTX's mini HDMI port?

3. I've heard that adding an MXO2 + MAX provides better (as in more FX and layers) preview capabilities. Would I connect the MXO2 between the GTX and the preview monitor using HDMI?

TIA,
vjahm

application LCDs go to the GTX
Preview connects to the Matrox or decklink or AJA card.
the preview LCD is generally a better more color accurate LCD particularly if going to broadcast.
