4 monitors on one 5770

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Ok, I have a challenge for you guys, I need to be able to run four monitors off of my 5770 and use all of them as separate monitors (i.e. I do not want any converters that treat all outputs as a single display stretched and/or duplicated). The outputs on the card are as follows: DVI, DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort. The inputs for the monitors (In a few cases, TVs) are: HDMI, HDMI, DVI, and DVI. I would like to spend as little money as I possibly can. I have been searching for the past few hours trying to come up with something.

Please no comments on how the 5770 will not have the processing throughput to power the displays, because I am not gaming on them, only displaying pictures and video.

(Also, if anyone has a spare pci-e based video card (enough to keep my mom's computer running) that they would not mind lending to me for a week or two, I can grab her 5770 and run two of the displays off of it)

You need a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter. Here are the ATI approved ones.

Ah I was about to get my troll on .

I went to Future Shop a while back and they had a 5770 Core i7 rig (I know, what a build) that was hooked up to three monitors using the Display Port Adapter.

EDIT: Ya you need the adapter that ezveedub said ^^. Regualr display port doesn't work I think. Whatever I'm mumbling just listen to him -__-.

I looked at those, but the hardware limitations of the gpu itself (not processing), do not allow you to use more than two of the following connectors: HDMI, DVI, VGA. Pretty much I need a splitter that does not duplicate the picture, nor stretches the signal across several monitors.

How can you have two DVI ports and can only use one? Is is for splitting one screen on two monitiors?
I think you are stuck with 3 monitors based off what I've been reading. The card was designed to run Eyefinity, which is three monitors on that card.

One is linked to the HDMI. He could use both but then couldn't use the HDMI. Or he could use one HDMI and one of the two DVI's.

@OP Good luck with this, and I am curious as to what the solution will be. I know that you will need an adapter, converter, or something...

I thought 3 was max,according to what I've read.I knew about the third needing the display port adaptor.Didn't know the card could run a fourth monitor though.I'm currently running 2 monitors off my card and a third off of the on board mobo video.Have to look into this.More always is always better.
