AMD R9 200 / HD 7900 Series

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, noob to forum here

At my wits end trying to add a 3rd monitor to my 2 monitor setup
Here is a photo of the back of my card:

I have also bought this displayport adapter

I keep getting asked what monitor i want replacing, so only giving me two, i want to add (don't get the option)
Reading that my adapter might be a passive one and not active, you think this can be right?

Much appreciated

Yes that is a passive adapter, so it won't work. But why didn't you just get a mini DP to HDMI adapter? That makes the issue of it being passive or not irrelevant and get's rid of that extra dvi to hdmi adapter.
