dual link cable to two monitors
 
Ok I have my rig below hooked up to the 27 inch acer 3d vision monitor, but I want to switch sometimes to my dell 30 inch monitor, what do I have to buy, so I don't have to keep taking the dvi dual link from one monitor to the other. one the 30 inch has a 2560/1200 res. and the 27 inch has a 1920/1080, so dual link has it covered. has anybody done this?.

Why not run two dual link DVI cables to each monitor (a cable to each) and disable the one not in use through the display properties applet?

Your GPU should have 2 dual-link DVI ports each.

Ok I will try that, Thanks for your help.:) Just did it and works playing battlefield 3 on my del U3011, since it isn't 3d ready yet.
