Hi I just bought 2 Asus Radeon 2gb 7770s. Hooked them up. Hooked up 2 monitors to one card and 1 to one card. Wouldn't let me make a eyinfinty group, b/c all had to be hooked up to one card. Then i bought a display port to dvi adapter hooked it up now it just disables my 3rd monitor. I want a eyinfinty setup. Anything I'm doing wrong?

Best solution

oh yeah one more thing, its a question, Will crossfire still work with 3 monitors? I've read a couple fourms and a little confused.

yeah it should. from what i was reading, you will have to have all of the active monitors plugged into the 1st card in the chain, and one of them has to be using the display port (whether it be through an active adapter or using a monitor with display port). as long as you meet those requirements you should be able to do it.


also think im trying to be condescending, but your mobo does support crossfire right?
