Turned from Green to Red but Questions...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, I bought 2 x HD 6970 and I must say, on one screen it looks fantastic with max settings all the way. Crysis DAO II Metro etc etc.

My main screen is a Dell 24"(1200) and I have 2 22" (1080) Samsung LEDs.

I am now trying to get all 3 screen running at once, main and the other 2 as extended. I want this to run 3 Eve online clients at once.

Would love to try soem 3 screen gaming as well. WIll that work with the different resolutions of the monitors?

I seem to be unable to do so unless I buy an "active DisplayPort adaptor"

Why do I need this? Why can I not just hook up my third monitor to the second card? If that wa the cae, would I then loose XFire?

I am looking for answers elsewhere but thought I would ask here in the meantime...

Thanks...

You can do this in windowed mode.

It will but with some tweaking

You will have to have at least one DP... otherwise yes you will loose xfire if you hook to GPU 2
