Soz, haha. did not think that it was relevant. But my graphics card are: 2X Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5

And my screens are 3X: Asus 24" LED VN247H


What else do u need?

DVI/DVI and a single MiniDP to DVI active adapter will work. So will two MiniDP to DVI adapters and one on DVI or HDMI.

Active adapter list:

Problems you may have include a horizontal tear on the Adapter's screen (or DVI's if you use 2 adapters) due to the display clocks not quite syncing correctly. Also 1GB is very little for such a high resolution these days. It'll be fine for things like TF2, but they certainly won't be maxing Crysis 4 or BF4 any time soon based on VRAM alone.

Thank you for a good response. I know my system aint exactly the best nor beast in any kind. But i am just gonna play HoN/ Heroes Of Newerth. And if my GPU's can't do that then i will upgrade. But like i said earlier i've orderer an adapter that has MINI DP to DVI-D Active. So what's left now is to pick up the part from the local store and go test it. driving 3 x screens on 1920x1440 takes up 2.6GB/s of VRAM i think, and Radeon's website recommended the card i had for Eyefinity surround gaming, For easy-like games. So i dont know if it's gonna work nor not. But guess i will find out.

Anyways, Thanks for the clearing up in adapters +1 REP for you, sir.
