triple monitor output on a x1800

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an HIS x1800xt with 256 MB RAM. It has VIVO, and it comes with 2 VIVO cables. I can either have an s-video in, rca in, s-video out, and rca out, or i can use the other cable and have a component (RGB) out.

My question is: If I get a component video to vga or dvi adapter, can I use the 3 outputs at the same time, or is there a limit of 2 total outputs? Right now I am using the 2 outputs on my graphics card and the integrated graphics with a total of 3 monitors. The reason I want to use 3 from my x1800 is so i can play games and so i can use span mode on all 3.

You can only use 2.

Edit: Matrox TripleHead2Go might be up your alley too.

the triplehead2go is way too expensive, for $300 I might as well buy another graphics card and upgrade to a crossfire motherboard

plus, the triplehead2go doesn't work well with ati graphics cards
