This is the first time im using the forum and i'm stumped. I recently got an HP 2159 Moniter Full 1080p. My computer already has two moniters one connected with DVI and the other VGA. So the thing is I want all three hooked up. and with DVI connected to all of them. I would be using this for video editing and filming.
I want this one more because i want to replace completly my graphics card. It has dual DVI so i would get a splitter to connect to one of them and bam. But the question is. Will this be able to run three moniters? To be extended?
both of them are very weak,neither of them will be able for 3 monitors.you can run 2 monitors at a time,why not you go with a bit faster gpu like hd 4670 or hd 5670 or even 8800gt/9800gt,they are now really cheap and fast!
Since the HD6000 series has 6 TMDS links you should be able to connect 3 monitors with 2 of them directly in DVI outputs and one in HDMI (with cheap HDMI/DVI adapter).
The HD5000 series has 'only' 5 TMDS links which mandates the use of at least one displayport output.
I find the ATI software very bugged, I tried triple screens with an XFX ATI HD 5870
And they keep turning the screens in the wrong place, on startup i get half screens. And startup screen is stretched to 1,5 screens.
This and the software force me to just go back to NVIDIA. Their screen extending software is MUCH MUCH better... And also better to understand.
If your motherboard supports it I would add a second cheap video card.
1 Gefore 9800GT
1 Geforce 8500
No need for adapters, and they don't need to work in SLI either.
Bam, problem solved...
