The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 295 graphics card features two GPUs on a single graphics card.  The HDMI port on the Geforce GTX 295 is directly connected to the secondary GPU.  This means you will not be able to view all of the contents if the HDMI connected display is the only display connected to your PC.  The HDMI port serves best as a secondary monitor.  If you wish to use a display with an HDMI port to your Geforce GTX 295 and wish for it to be your single only monitor, we suggest using a DVI to HDMI adaptor and connect the display to the primary DVI port on the Geforce GTX 295 graphics card.
