Closed Multi Monitor on graphics card question. Tags: Radeon Graphics Cards DVI Monitors Graphics Product Last response: December 18, 2010 5:08 AM in Graphics & Displays Share ColtonC48 December 7, 2010 11:34:35 PM 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. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 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 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 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 More about : multi monitor graphics card question xXCozterXx December 8, 2010 2:33:50 AM 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...
