Yesterday, I ordered 2 Dells 24" monitors to replace my 2nd and 3rd (left, right) monitors, I and a bit worry that, after these 2 new monitors arrives, my single 5970 will not able to support my mmo gaming on center (30" 2560X1600) plus 2 other (1920x1080) monitors for browsing / movie...etc.
So I guess I wanted to plug my 2nd 5970 back to my motherboard (doesnt matter xFire or not, but i guess I will go for 2 cards instead of xFire). I read the manual of my motherboard, its PCIe does suppot 16+16+1 or 16+8+8 settings.
is 16+8+8 setting will support my 2X 5970s and the SSD link card?
How should I plug it on the mother board?
Should I go to Bios and manually set the PIC Express speed?
Can I go for xFire under 16+8 ?
