    This is my configuration:
    Windows 10 Pro 64bit, Geforce GTX 970

    I have 3 Full HD Monitors which I only could configure as a 5760x1080 surround display with the old nvidia 347.88 driver for Windows 7/8

    If I change to the newest drivers I cannot chose more than 2 displays in surround option dialog.

    Does anybody have the same problem or a working setup like this with more up-to-date drivers?

    I have a 1070 which I keep pretty up to date in regards to drivers and never had an issue configuring Surround for all 3 of my monitors (27" 1080s).

    Not sure if that helps at all. :unsure:

    I do think that nvidia restricted the possibility of using different displays in the newest drivers. Maybe because it could create problems if they have different polarities and or scantypes.

    I found a workaround for it but I don't recommend it because it could possible harm your monitors.
    My monitors are cheap and old so I gave it a go.

    I made my three monitors look all the same by giving them the same drivers with this tool: https://www.entechtaiwan.com/util/moninfo.shtm
    So I created an inf file from my oldest display and gave it to all my 3 monitors via control panel.
    Now the surround option dialog lists all 3 displays as the same type and I can use them with 5760x1080 without a problem.
