OT slightly -Connecting cable advice please

Recommended Posts

Hello chaps


Slightly OT but can any of you technical chaps advise please. I have a nvidia GTX 280 graphics card which has a DVI output.


I know that if I use a DVI cable from it to a Monitor with DVI input I will get ( my desired ) resolution 0f 1920 x 1080.


What i want to do is connect from the same DVI output to a Projector also running at 1920 x 1080. At the same time.


I was thinking that I could have a DVI splitter in the graphics card, and from that a DVI to DVI cable to the Monitor; and also from the splitter, a DVI to HDMI cable to the projector.


Obviously when the serious OFF flight starts (lol) I'd switch the monitor off and the projector on.


The question is, will the above set up work, or is there a technical problem I'm unaware of?
