So I found a crackin' deal on 3 20" monitors, and I want to use my 7870 but I'm wondering if it can do 3 monitors. I already have a 22" and 19" running now, but would like some uniformity in size.

It's a 7870 2GB MSI twin frozr 3 OC edition. Has a DVI, HDMI and 2 mini display adapters.

I've done some research but I can't find a conclusive answer on it. I see people saying that you need an active display port to dvi to run it, but I'm not sure if they mean with 2 cards or one, or what.


This one seems to be a good option to use for eyefinity

So it'll be 1 DVI, 1 HDMI, and 1 mini-display on 3 20" 1680x1050 monitors.

Thanks.
