3Screens 1ATI card

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have 1 4870X2
and I'd like to run 3 screens on it, now i run with two, DVI and VGA,
so I need some kind of adaptar, cheaper = better
Ive seen this 1; http://www.daganm.co.il/rec/641-%D7%...7%94%D7%91,-10
my question is, will it work to run a 3 screen set but I dont want to see to SAME thing on 2 screens, that every screen would be recognized by windows and I would be able to show different things on each screen of the 3.

thanks in advance.

Only way with a dual output card is to use a Matrox TripleHead2Go, which is very expensive.

It would be cheaper to get like a Radeon 6950 with Eyefinity.

thanks but are you sure there is only 1 device that does that?

Those are splitters and switches. Won't help you span your desktop across three screens.
