How many monitors can I hook up to the XFX 6950?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Simple as that.. I am about to get my second monitor via ups in a couple days at most and will it work without buying another 6950?

I currently have a ASUS VE247H hooked up via DVI and a Samsung 55" 3D LED via HDMI. If I just hook up the second VE247H via DVI will it just work? Oh, and I will be setting up a display group (eyefinity) with the two asus monitors.

Well...It's got 3 ports, right?

You can do 3 monitors but, 2 is reccomended unless you have a 6990/6970.

IIRC you can do 2 displays using DVI/HDMI but if you want to hook up a third monitor at least one of the displays has to be running from the mini display ports.

Displayport v1.2 can daisychain up to 4 independent monitors from one port. Then you have HDMI and DVI.

Hi mikeseth. You won't be able to setup a three monitor configuration using DVI/DVI/HDMI. If you wish to run three monitors you will need to use a Display Port for one of the displays, as Skuloth said. Therefore either DVI/HDMI/DP or DVI/DVI/DP. Hope this helps.
