6950 ~ DVI dual link means no multi monitor?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So im confused here.

I have 3 monitors.

1 ~ LCD TV running through HDMI port ~ works fine
2 ~ ViewSonic LED running though DVI port ~ works fine

Now my problem

3rd monitor ~ LG 19'' LCD

If i plug this in via the second DVI port on my card, it shows up in my CCC, but i cannot use it. Why is this? Can it be resolved?

Ideally i would like to use these smaller monitors as a desktop that stretches over both monitors and my TV as an extender.

Am i asking to much? What am i doing/have done wrong?

DVI #1, DVI #2, HDMI ~ You can only use 2 out of the 3 at once.

Mini-DisplayPort 1 & Mini-DisplayPort 2 ~ You can use both of these two.

It is a hardware limitation because the graphics card can only output 2 displays off the DVI/HDMI ports.

This same issue with NVIDIA cards had to get a 9400gt to run tri screens. U could get a dp adapter and run it that way
