    I have two 1080tis in SLI

    I need to place a video card between them and only a single slot will fit.

    The 1080tis run the centre screen in SLI

    The single card will be used to drive 2 x 1080P side monitors in portrait, sandwiched between the two 1080tis (there are 3 120mm side fans with high static pressure blowing on the cards and with the GPU fans at 100%, they stay at 65 degrees.

    I have just tested this with a 710 Nvidia and it works. BUT

    I need a single slot card with 3 outputs - DVI, HDMI or DP will all work. Two will run the monitors and the HDMI will go to a receiver in 7.1

    e.g

    PLEASE HELP ME

    Can't you just run the other panels with ports from your primary 1080ti?

    I don't want to run the other panels with the 1080tis.

    I want the 1080s to only do picture via DP to the main screen at all times via SLI

    Without another card

    deactivate all displays and switch to SLI when gaming

    switch between SLI and activate all displays and this is a pain in the ass

    when working switch back again

    I want the audio coming not form the 1080tis

    I will be twitch streaming and I still want the high quality gaming for me

    USB display adapters?
    Are you running a mainstream Intel motherboard? Two digital displays right there.
    Use your onboard digital audio output?
    Does it _need_ to be 10 series? Maybe use an old Quadro K2000 or similar.

    I had 2x 980ti with 3 screens and I can have all screens running and set SLI maximize performance to only the center screen. Audio you can simply set separately via the sound control to set the default device.
