I have a Sapphire HD 7970 Graphics Card, and I want to get a 3 monitor surround setup going. The problem is, all 3 monitors are detected, but I can only enable 2 at at a time. When I try to enable the third monitor it says "To extend the desktop, a desktop or display must be disabled."
I have no clue why it's saying that, but I really just want this to start working. I also tested it through windows but it says that it's unable to save my settings. Could it be that the card cant handle the resolution? Thanks in advance!

If you want to enable 3 displays on HD 7000 series cards, one of the displays must be connected through native DisplayPort (a passive link from DisplayPort to DVI will not work).

If you try and connect more than two displays using any combination of VGA/DVI/HDMI you will have to disable one first.
