You use a PCI x1600? Is there even a PCI version of this card? I thought it's AGP and PCI-E

Only if your motherboard has IGP, Integrated Graphics. Then you should be able to enable 'surround view' in your BIOS. Otherwise you need 2 videocards, and i doubt your motherboard supports that...?

Well I bought another ati card and after a while between ati software and ultramon I got all three to work. The only prob is after I was done I restarted windows froze and I couldn't get it to work. Even when I uninstaled the new card and tried it all over again. How do I know if my mobo supports 2 cards. If not I will build one that can. Thanks mike

I just had it working again windows saw the third monitor and ultramon (multi screen software) saved display profile. It was all good three different pages 1440x900. Then I restarted to see if it kept and now blank screens. I thought once it worked it always worked. In the device mananger everything is fine. Even ati software picks up the 2 card 4 monitor setup even though I'm only using three
