i am a pc gamer that uses 3 monitors ( 2 external 1 is my laptop ) and accomplish this by using 2 dvi to usb adapters. because i game i would like to use all 3 monitors full screen with my games but my GPU ( AMD 8670M) does not support eyefinity.

please help me on how i can use 3 monitors for gaming without eyefinity

p.s i can only connect all 3 using the usb to dvi otherwise 1 will not work

thanks

actualy it does suport eyefinity http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/graphics/notebook/850... but what display outputs do you have on your laptop im assuming you dont have a displayport


i have a switchable graphics system so only in game will the 8670m do anything otherwise im using an intel apu but i have 1 vga and 1 hdmi

also may i state that the 8670m only supports 2 monitors but i want 3
not unless the usb to dvi will work with eyefinity also my laptop does not have eyefinity software only graphics properties and switchable graphics

i can use the 3 monitors as 3 in the windows config but i need games to run full screen across all 3 do you know and 3rd party software that can achieve this or maybe extra hardware

Only solution I can think... Run your games windowed and stretch it across your 3 screens.

Keep in mind your running a mobile video card, and you may not get usable fps

BTW, are your 2 monitors the same size as your laptop?

no my 1st external monitor is on the left it is 21.5" 1080p
my second monitor is my laptop in the middle 17' 1600 x 900
my 3rd monitor is the same one as the first on the right

is it possible that i can upgrade the card in my laptop or should i just screw it stop laptop gaming and save for a desktop because i would like to get an alien ware in the future but that would be in maybe 4 years but i still want the full 3 monitor experience without waiting for one.

also i really kinda need laptop gaming because i am at different places all of the time i.e for 3 days i will be here then for 5 i will be there

You can't upgrade your video card, best bet is save your money and BUILD your computer. Check out WWW.pcper.com theres budget builds for around 500.

Eyefinity wouldn't work on your setup.. Picture the middle of the game 4" smaller.. Kinda hard to shoot.
