sup, i am building a new pc and watnted to know if i can use 3 monitors with out eyefinity dont get me wrong the idae sounds cool but for my setup i need to monitors on each side of the middle one to be in portrait mode and the middle one to be landscape.

i am planning on getting a ati 5770 at the end of next month and a new monitor at the end of july.

the monitors will not be the same res the 2 i have now are 19" 1680x1050 monitors and the new one to go dead center is either a 21.6" or a 23" at 1920x1080 i do a lot of photoshop and editing papers hence the reason for the 2 porttrait monitors and and i needed. i want to beable t use the 2 dvi ports for the 2 19" suckers and the hdmi port for the new monitor and being under a limit of $180 month i can only buy one at a time per month and wanted to get this out of my the way before i spend too much money

the rest of my system is:

630 watt psu
a Cooler master storm sniper black edition
a wd caviar black 500gb 7200rpm
kingston hyperx ram 2x4gb ddr2 1066+2x4gb ddr2 800 = 8gb ram total

also sorry for the grammer problem
