When you have crossfire enabled you can only use the outputs on the card that is considered primary. If you disable crossfire you can then use the outputs on both cards. When I had my 4850's in crossfire I had profiles setup for crossfire vs. Non. Without crossfire enabled I had 3 monitors running but when gaming and I needed the extra power I'd activate my profile with crossfire and go down to just 1 monitor.
Like sitous said, the newer ATI cards can run 3 monitors per card rather then 2. Currently I'm running a 5850 with 3 monitors. Eyefinity is lovely...
Hi AdioKIP - and others here ... I need help please..
I have 3 monitors - 26" ASUS <1920x1200> & two AOC 17" <1280x1024>.
I want to buy a new computer (i5?).
I use computer mainly for office applications + photos & video from camera.
I want 3 screens to run independantly (not one big screen).
I may start to use some "point & shoot" games in future.
What video card / cards setup should I start looking at?
Is Eyefinity not possible when needing 3 independant screen (not one big one)?
Is Crossfire the way to go?
What i5 & MB combination is the best price point?
Thanks in advance....
