Solved Does the new ifinity cards mean just more outputs? Tags: Radeon Connection Dvi Monitors Sapphire Graphics Last response: April 13, 2010 8:27 AM in Graphics & Displays Share jeowf April 13, 2010 3:18:35 AM I have a sapphire hd4850 connected to a 22" dvi monitor and a 17" dvi monitor. If i upgrade to a sapphire vapor-x hd 5770 will i be able to connect my spare 20" dvi monitor (which i just got) and just use its an additional extended desktop display? the hd5770 has 2 x Dual-Link DVI 1 x HDMI 1 x DisplayPort may i convert the display port to a dvi port and connect a 3rd monitor?

And active adapter involves power, usually provided by a USB connector.
