ok, I just want to know if I might be missing something... but the use of all DVI outputs with my 5870s in X-Fire will not work with Eyefinity correct?
I know the only way to use triple monitors with Nvidia is through the use of SLI, so does/will ATI offer this option? I tried it a bit ago but it didn't work (10.3). I'm getting tired of DP errors and a not so crisp image with the middle VGA monitor.
You need at least one monitor or an active adapter with display port. The only exception is the 5770 Flex from Sapphire which seems to trick the drivers into thinking it's using an active adapter for the single link bottom DVI port
I have been using an Accell DP to DVI (active) adapter to connect with eyefinity and had ZERO luck getting it to work. Accell is blaming the monitors (all are DVI enabled) and ATI blames the adapter. I am stuck between a rock an a hard place really. No support from Accell means I will probably end up buying an expensive DP monitor.
