ive done alot of reading before deciding to run 3 monitors including staying AWAY from VGA but considering i already had two monitors (both have ONLY vga ports) i decided to just buy a used one and call it a day
my gpu is a xfx 7870 core edition
im trying to get this to work but have a feeling im going to spent another 30-50 on ANOTHER active adapter
so first monitor Mini dp to vga (works yay!)
second monitor mini dp to vga (also works!)
third (far right monitor) DVI-d to vga (no no bueno)
ive tried it in BOTH dvi slots on this card
the top one is suppose to be DVI-I (digital AND analog) just says "cable not connected"
the bottom one (its red on this card) is obviously only digital but i tried it just in case
i ve switched the cables all around to see if it was just the right side monitor not working/bad connection and i can get 2 working with mini dp to vga's just fine
my only solution and its not a great one get a DVI to vga ACTIVE adapter and hope i can get the digital only dvi port to post
or HDMI to VGA (dunno if thats even possible lol)
is their some magic switch i am suppose to turn on/off to utilize the analog/digit dvi on this card?!?!
