Woah!

thats an SLI board, not a crossfire board, so you cannot use more than a single ATI card.

Judging by his other pic (and name), I'm not so sure his intention was to Crossfire. It may just be for the outputs?

If so, I think you should be able to get all three in.

And there will be one (the top PCI-E 1x) slot open (each card takes up two slots and the case has 7).

ya right no cross fire , just display outputs,

if you only want the outputs why not use a lower end card? or even wait for the 6 port version to come out?

If its just outputs you want for 2D apps then a cheap 5450 or 5570 even the 5670 will cut your cost down by alot.

can each of 5450 , 5570 and 5670 is capable of giving three display outputs or not

please confirm


why does ATI Radeon™ HD 5750 takes up two slots when compared to the ATI Radeon™ HD 5670 GPU

whats extra in 5750 that it takes up two case slots ?

yes all 3 can support 3 displays, any 5000 series can. Its the cooler it dose not to be as big (because the cards are not as powerfull), also the 5450 and 5570 should have passive coolers for quietness and the 5670 I think also has an option to be passively cooled.

so its because of the cooling that the 5670 takes up to two case slots, it that correct ?

correct. bigger fan, cooler CPU.

i say go with the 5450, less heat, less power and more space inside the PC.

so finally if i install three 5450s on the motherboard's three x16 slots

i will get 9 independent displays, with no loss of performance on 2d apps :o 

is that so ?

You should not see any difference with running a 2D app on a 5450/5570 compared to the higher end 5770 or even the 5870. The 5670 and up cards are targeting gamers which is why they need the 2 slot cooling, while everything below it is more targeted to home theater and multiple monitor stock trading/online poker setups.

Best solution
