Default Re: nvidia 3d vision surround req. incl. gtx 200 series

You have a few points wrong there or mistyped.

The single GPU GTX 200 cards (260, 275, 280, 285) are only supported in 2-way SLI for Surround right now. Only the GTX 295 is supported in Quad SLI.

also and it's not yet supported as of the 258.69 betas.
All the GTX 200 series cards are supported right now in the latest betas for Surround.

the only thing that is confusing is that gpu connector req. are 3d projectors but below they tell you what you can really use for supported display modes and resolutions, duh?
The 3D projector requirement is only for a single GTX 295 with 2 DVI and 1 HDMI connector. You can hook up 3 displays to this single GTX 295 and get Surround. But to get 3D Surround, you need to use 3D projectors because of the way the 3D projectors receive and display a 3D image vs. the 3D LCD screens. 3D LCD screens require 120Hz signals, which only the two DVI ports on that GTX 295 can provide. However, 3D projectors use a different method, which can be done over the HDMI port on the card as well.
