Default 4 monitor sli setup problems

Im trying to setup a 3 monitor sli on 2 460 gtx 1024 while also have a 4th monitor for monitoring having the web open etc is this possible on the two cards or am I going to have to buy a third card to do it. Really don't want to buy another card even though I have a slot on my board for it because its to close together and its in a mid case with enough fans in it and im sure they will run to hot. Is this possible without the third card or no? Thanks!

Yes, it's possible as long as there are enough outputs on your cards (two per card, so you'll be fine).

I tried to when I do the sli setup it comes up as three monitors afterwards I go back under and it doesn't detect the 4th as a spare just the three as one ? The drivers are up to date and everything is new freshly built.

Did you look in Screen Resolution, or perhaps the Control Center of NVIDIA?

No, I don'ts think its possible.. if you want to run 3 monitors of games.. and 1 not, Even with 4 outputs.
