Closed Multi Monitor on graphics card question. Tags: Radeon Graphics Cards Dvi Monitors Graphics 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.

For intance if you were running 5 19" you would not nessacerally have to have active adapters in the first place...

Hope this helps, xXCozter8Xx 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. | Report abuse Best solution xXCozterXx December 8, 2010 3:35:38 AM 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).
