I have a late 2011 Alienware Aurora R4 with two video cards:
- GeForce GTX 590 Driving three 27" HP2711 monitors
- GeForce GT 520 Driving one 32" Sharp AQUOS
About a year ago I attempted to install (dual boot) Mint Cinnamon and everything seemed to go well until I got to the point of configuring the displays. I spent a few days working on and researching the issues, and finally gave up as the majority of my research indicated it simply wouldn't work without investing in a single video card with four heads (like a GTX 760).
I'm interested in taking another attempt at this, and my research indicates that it may be possible today; however, I can find no definitive answer nor any instructions on what the configuration steps ought to be.
My questions is then two fold.
- Is it possible to Ubuntu to run all four monitors properly with these two cards?
- If so, what is required to properly configure the system?
