I have 2 560TI's in SLI for 3 monitors in surround. I also have a TV that I would like to watch things on from my PC. Is there any easier way than going into the Nvidia control panel, turning surround off, enabling the TV as a fourth monitor, and stretching my head to see what I'm doing with the mouse (because of how my setup is) to be able to sit on my couch and watch something from my PC?

Other than getting video adapter (USB -> HDMI or something) or another cheap video card, no.

You don't have a media center enabled device? The PS3 works wonders for this.

I have an extra HDMI port on the I/O sheild with graphics supplied from my i5-2500K.

You'll have to tell BIOS to always leave the integrated graphics on, and hope Windows is fine with it (it usually is.)

Also herp derp on my end for not realizing this.
