So here's my question.

I just bought this card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It supports 5 monitors it says.

I want to run 5 monitors all monitor will be DVI so I bought 3 additional active adapters to dvi since it comes with 2 already.

So I bought 3 of those.

My question is I see some people saying that you need the really expensive active adapters to run more that 3 monitors and I was wondering if that was true or not this is the expensive adapter I was talking about

I know it's a wall of text and I really appreciate the help and time you will be giving to help me.

Thanks a million

Hey,

It all comes down to what size monitors wiil you be running? For intance if you were running 5 19" you would not nessacerally have to have active adapters in the first place... :) 

Hope this helps,

Nothing will be running above 1900x1200 so I won't have to worry about the monitors not working without the usb power adapter thingy?

Thanks for the response.

Hey,

Then these adapters should be just fine for what you are doing, as i am using the very same adapter for my 1920 x 1080 monitors (3).

Hope this helped, and good luck to you!,

Just wanted to update that it works fine for more monitors I have had 6 total monitors on :D 

No it won't work in games but it's great for charting or anything you need.

Works great for 6 monitors.
