I am trying to find a definitive answer to this question. I want to run two different resolution dvi monitors as my computer desktop (main plus extended). I also want to clone my desktop onto my hdtv through hdmi. The HD 5850 has connections for all this, but I keep reading opposing reviews as to whether both dvi ports as well as hdmi can be used together. Can I run the set up as outlined above? Goal is to run a 2 dvi monitor pc with clone onto hdtv through hdmi to see the desktop.
From what I've read, Yeah 3 different LCD monitors can be used. The DVI is only Dual Link meaning one each, I guess. HDMI is on the card, so three monitors should be no problem. If your having trouble you might want to check the site www.ati.amd.com or play with the Catalyst software a bit.
