Hey,
So I can get both monitors to display, But only through the motherboard & they show the same thing, They won't extend.
So I was wondering if it's possible to have my main monitor hooked up to my 660ti & my 2nd hooked up to my monitor & extend them.

Thanks.

The only way you can daisy chain monitors without a 3rd piece of equipment is via DisplayPort, which is a better alternative to HDMI.

Also dual monitors should work OOB on the 660, how are you connected your two monitors right now?

When I changed to the motherboard, One was through HDMI the other was through DVI.

So you have the HDMI and DVI plugged into the 660? Try booting then right clicking on the desktop, going to screen resolution, and see if your monitor is there

What type of dvi slot is your monitor connected to?
What type of connection does it have? eg. VGA connected VIA adaptor?

No, They where plugged in to the motherboard, That's the only way I could get 2 screens to work.

Plug it in in the dvi-i slot with a dvi-i adaptor?

Because im guessing you monitor uses analogue signal, if you plug it in the dvi-d (thats digital) then you would get a black screen.
