Eyefinity Setup Problem

Ok, I just had a thread, easy answer to it though. I have an HD Radeon 7xxx series not sure which, it has one DVI and one DisplayPort, and I want to do three monitors. I am aware I can get a DisplayPort splitter to do it, thanks to DisplayPort tech. But I prefer not spend any more than already have. My M/B can enable both onboard graphics and video card, so as to use more monitors. CCC grays out the one connect to my M/B, and someone told me Eyefinity won't work with the onboard, is there any way to get around this? Whether it be by tricking it into thinking the onboard is the video card too, or using another software, really anything? Ideas?

  1. In order to setup eyefinity on 3 displays, you will need to purchase an active DP adapter. Eyefinity is independent of your board and relies strictly on your GPU. Pick up a StarTech DP2DVIS DisplayPort to DVI Active Adapter

    I already have one, the thing is this card only has one DVI and one DisplayPort. So I will need to get a splitter, (one DP to 2 DVI)...

    Figure our what series card you have. Some only support two displays. Download and run GPU-Z to determine your GPU details.

    Do you mean HD 7870 or HD 7750? There is no such thing as a 7570.

    Well, GPU Z is identifying it as an AMD Radeon 7000 series, but not giving a specific number for it, but I found multiple things saying "7570" despite none existing and loooks identical, this is what mine looks identical too except green surface not blue: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=HD+RAdeon+7570&FORM=HDRSC2#view=detail&id=78CE11CB2FBA9A964E9D73BF9A99CB2CC4F78B95&selectedIndex=14

    Ok, it's a dell branded radeon, called the HD Radeon 7570, it CAN support three monitors so that's not an issue, we're good! Thanks...
