    CS5 MPE - Dual (non-SLI) graphics compatable?

    srinity

      Currently, I have Adobe CS2, and am finally considering upgrading to CS5.  Of course, my system is also quite old, so I am looking to upgrade that as well.

       

      I have three monitors right now (2x 1600x1200, 1x 1680x1280), and I want to add a fourth (either 1920x1200 or 1920x1080) for viewing HD content.

       

      1) If I buy a Fermi card (probably a 470), and run it along with my existing 8800GTS, can I enable MPE on the Fermi card?

      2) If I buy two Fermi cards, can I enable MPE on both?  Or is MPE restricted to one card?

       

      Because I want to run four monitors, SLI won't be enabled.  Does anyone have experience running MPE on multi-gpu configurations?

       

      3) Non-GPU related:  With multiple monitors, the HD monitor can be setup as a fullscreen realtime preview of source/output, while keeping the workflows on the smaller 20"s, right?

       

      Thanks!
