I want to run 3 22inch monitors and a 32 inch 720p TV from my desktop. For the 3 monitors I was thinking a radeon 5850 using eyefinity. For the TV i want to use a radeon 4670 I have lounging around the house. The question is about an appropriate motherboard for this situation. Question one is if, in a 880G chipset, I could run the 5850 in the 16x PCIE slot and the 4670 in the 4x slot. Question 2 is if not, or if it would not run well, what would be a better solution. Obviously the 890fx would work with so many PCIE lanes, but I am trying to do this on the cheep. THANKS!
anything with dual pci-e x16 2.0 at an electrical 8 x8 would be more then enough. They have already done comparions with gtx480 in crossfire showing only a 1-2 percent drop in fps between dual pci-e 2.0 x16 and dual pci-e 2.0 x8.
With your case in particular it makes even less of a difference as you only have 1 card that will do any real work. I would find out what motherboard mindless728 is using. that seems perfect for you.
