    SLI + 4k TV + Oculus Rift...How? Only one active HDMI output.

    Hi All, The sale on Rift has got me thinking about snagging one but I have a few questions. 1. Each card only has 1 x HDMI output but am I right in saying that only the primary card's outputs will work? 2. My main monitor is a 4k TV which only has HDMI inputs. 3. How do I go about connecting...

    GTX 1080 outputs only on one port, any tips how to solve this?

    After using my 1080 for two weeks (Gigabyte G1 Gaming), yesterday after a bootup I noticed that the card only sends out signal on one of the display ports (it has 3 DP, 1 HDMI).

    Is it wise to wait for DP 1.3/HDMI 2.0 monitors?

    I've been wanting to upgrade to a new monitor for a few months now. I'm pretty much ready to jump on the LG 29UM58 ultrawide as the price is right, I won't be able to use the higher 29um68's freesync cos I use Nvidia cards and the 34" versions at 1080p seem like a bad, blurry choice. That...
