Triple monitors on a 5770?

so far iv just been using my 22inch Acer, but recently someone gave me two older Dell Monitors(i believe 15'')

so i plan on using CCC to make them all one huge desktop for gaming.

but im a little concerned, do you think a 5770 can handle that resolution without a huge drop in framerates? (its overclocked with about a 3+ fps)

i have to decide weather i want to do it now because ill need to buy a Displayport -Dvi adapter to hook up all 3 monitors

  1. your acer will have to run at the resolution of those two dells, so i think you'll be fine.

    You could also try a displayport-vga adapter to test out the config

    will eyefinity work if i get the Displayport to Dvi adapter?

    or am i going to need to buy a monitor that already has a Displayport connector?
  3. you can get an active dp->dvi adapter. it'll cost about $100 though

    i have an eyefinity setup with 3 dvi monitors and i am using an active dp->dvi adapter

    wouldnt it be cheaper for me to just buy a whole other dp monitor?
    and just not use one of the dells? do you think i could get a 15" dp monitor for 100$ or less?

    dp monitors are pretty expensive and i don't think there are any 15" ones.

    yes, i believe that adapter will work

    ok thanks. i guess ill buy it but im a little concerned because its only 25$ while all the others are 100$. so im hoping it actually is active and not just a regular adapter

  8. if it is vga then it doesn't have to be active as long as the resoulution is less the 1920x1200
