Default Re: Running 3 displays on 560Ti?

A couple more questions:

If I run the TV through the motherboard, does it use horsepower from the graphics card? The thing is, what if I want to run games on the HDTV once in a while? I was thinking it would make more sense if the motherboard was hooked up to the secondary monitor which won't be doing anything too graphically intensive. So here's what I was thinking:

560Ti DVI 1 - Primary monitor
560Ti HDMI - HDTV
z68 - secondary monitor

Now, if I do this, I should be able to run an extended desktop with all 3 displays. Also, this gives me the ability to sometimes use the HDTV for gaming.
Does this make any sense?
The best way is to hook up your main gaming display (whichever it is) to the 560TI. I'm not sure how good the onboard is for gaming, but i'm sure it wouldn't be anywhere near as good as the 560.
