Hi, please could I have some advice on what to do to get Eyefinity with 3 identical monitors all in landscape mode.
1 Radeon HD 5700 (2x DVI 1x HDMI 1 x Display Port)
1 Radeon HD 4300 (1 x DVI 1 x VGA)
I have heard that Eyefinity only works if all the monitors are connected to one card. Is this true? Then I would have to connect 3 screens to the 5700 and buy all those display port adapters etc -> annoying, and wasting the power of the 4300 card.
Ideally I would like to connect one monitor to the 4300, and the other two to the 5700. Can it work this way? I want to be able to look to the left and right in games.
If, to play games and look to the left and right with 3 screens in landscape, I have to run all the screens from the 5700 then it's not exactly going to be perfect, i reckon it will struggle a little with games on high settings. What are my upgrade options? I have 3 PCIE, could I get another two 5700, ditch the 4300 and run 3x crossfire? Would 3x Crossfire 5700 work with eyefinity and one screen to each 5700 DVI?
What if instead of 2 more 5700's I bought one 5700 and a superior card? Would these 3 work with eyefinity? I guess I would put the better card, say E.g a HD 6850 for the middle monitor and the 5700s powering the outer screens. Ideally I just want to use my existing cards lol.
So all this talk about crossfire, SLI and to use eyefinity you have to use a single card. Seems strange. Thanks for the pointer though. Do I only need a passive display port adapter since the monitors are only 1920 * 1200?
