ATI 5770, Connecting 3 Monitors, 2 DVI and 1 HDMI

I want to be able to Day Trade on one LG monitor (w/DVI connection), do Stock Research on the second LG monitor (w/DVI connection) and watch Movies or TV on the Samsung monitor (w/HDMI connection). Is this possible, and if so, how?

- Windows 7 Professional 64
- XFX ATI Radeon HD 5770
2 - LG W2361VG-PF 23-inch LCD HD 1080p Monitors w/DVI, VGA, and HDMI inputs
1 - Samsung SyncMaster T240HD w/DVI, VGA, and HDMI inputs

  1. you can't use the 2 DVI, and 1 hdmi to achieve this, but you can however get adapters to go from the displayport, and that will work.

    One of these should work for you.

    Passive displayport adapters will not work for this type of setup, trust me I have tried it. I purchased the Active DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter Cable from Dell and it works great!!
