Small Eyefinity Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've just ordered my third monitor which will connect via mini display port.

Does it have to be an 'active' adapter?

Will this one work? It doesn't say active so I'm not sure.

If not could someone recommend a good one which isn't over £20 please?
Thanks.

ALSO:
(Im using 2 monitors at the moment)
On desktop all monitors are fine and sized correctly, but in some games one monitor has a black border making it a smaller resolution even when its set to the full resolution.

Works:
Portal 2
Batman Arkham City
Chivalry
Amnesia

Doesn't Work (Border):
Arma 2
Hitman Absolution

I guarantee this one works like a charm I used one for eyefinity and for nvidia surround

the one you have listed isnt active so it wont do eyefinity. I bought one exactly like that one that was listed as active but it didnt work the startech i listed for you is highly rated

also if you are just dual screening while gaming the eyefinity wont be happy doing that it is usually in my experience only happy running 1 or 3+ monitors
