Eyefinity question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I just recently put my 7950 in and wanted to run 3 monitors, I apparently didn't do enough research and it turns out I need some adapters for the 3rd monitor(all 3 are HP 2311x's), my question is if I get 2 mini display port to Dvi active adapters and use those for 2 screens and the main dvi line for the 3rd will that work ok? I'm pretty sure it will after reading up on it I just wanted some confirmation that I understood exactly what was needed after reading it, I'm trying to leave the HDMI available for my TV, my card is linked below as I haven't updated my rig yet. Thanks again for any help guys!

The first 2 monitors can be DVI or HDMI, but anything after such will have to come from a Mini-DP port.

so just to clarify, I can run the 1st monitor off the DVI port and then the 2nd and 3rd off the 2 mini display ports with active adapters then use the HDMI port for my TV?
