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?

from a "sapphire hd 4850" dual slot to a "sapphire vapor-x hd 5770"

but if your card works that way then its quite reasonable to assume that all the hd 5770's will act the same.

DUDE remember, the display port to DVI adapter must be an ACTIVE Adapter for a 3rd DVI monitor !

so its simply a special type of adapter, not like i need a special monitor or anything or special cable.

Yes you need a special cable.

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

Yeah, I know.

If you searched this forum you would've found my post pointing to the same about 4 month ago. ;)
