Crossfire + Duel monitor.... ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if this is possible with any set-up... Ideally i'd like to run a crossfired main monitor, and i don't care what secondary. I use it for AIM, web browse, or to view extra documents while doing homework. Even if it's just a cheap old PCI / AGP graphics card....

current specs..

m2a-mvp mobo
1650x's x2 gpu's
3gb's ocz ram
2.0 windser am2

What would I need to replace to have it work? guess i can just throw on a PCI video card.. and set CCC to crossfire eh? =\\

you can run crossfire with multiple monitors (up to 4) but when you game it will be only on 1 monitor (i believe). That is why crossfire is superior to SLI...

well there are certain games where you can set it up to use multiple monitors most things are a mod or sometimes its built into the game like the elder scrolls IV: oblivion there is a mod that you can run that will enable up to i think 6 monitors
