Does this card run 3 or 4 monitors?

Hello World,
I was looking to get the HIS HD Radeon 7770 Ghz Edition (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161402) but I wanted to know how many monitors it can actually support. If you look at the overview on (http://www.hisdigital.com/un/product2-681.shtml) it says you can "expand your gaming across up to three monitors". however, it then proceeds to show a sticker that says it can run up to 4 monitors. I need to know if it can really run 4 or only 3.

Thanks for everyone's help

    It should be able to power 4 monitors in Windows, but if you plan on gaming on multiple monitors with eyefinity, this card can only do 3. Although that is a bit moot, because this card doesn't quite have the power necessary to power more than 1 monitor on modern games unless the resolution per monitor is low.

    UPDATE: Actually, AMD says you can do 6 gaming, with additional adapters from miniDP to dual DVI or HDMI outs. BUT, you need a reference card. If you plan on doing this, make sure you check to see if the card you are about to purchase is a reference design or not.

  2. It should do three or four. To use anything over two you'll need those active mDP to DVI adapters.

    Edited for spelling because forums and cell phones don't mix well.
