Hello I currently have 3 monitors running at 5760x1080 I want to have a large 42 inch monitor on my wall above my 3 screens. My graphics card is the SAPPHIRE FleX 100312FLEX Radeon HD 6950 2GB. It has 2 dvi outputs, 1 hdmi, 2 mini displayports. How can I configure 4 screens?
Here is my gpu VV

from the link
"Targeting maximum flexibility with minimum outlay, Sapphire FleX Technology simplifies AMD’s multi-monitor Eyefinity solution by allowing 3 X DVI monitors to be connected to the board ‘out of the box’ without the requirement for expensive DisplayPort monitors or Active Adapters. The SAPPHIRE HD 6950 FleX also allows additional monitors to be added to the setup, but must be DisplayPort connected."

so use dp for one of your monitors and hdmi for the TV?

Thank you

I have the exactly same video card & this set-up:

42" #1 - DVI-D to VGA adaptor ( but you dont need this since you have DVI Monitor )
42" #2 - Active DP to VGA adaptor ( this is cheaper than an active DP to DVI but quality is just as good at 1920x1080 )
42" #3 - DVI-S to HDMI adaptor ( this is from my old HD4890 but you do not need it since you have DVI monitor )
55" - HDMI ( Edit: the Sapphire Flex include an HDMI to DVI adaptor so you can still connect via DVI too ).
I still have an extra DP port & another Active DP to VGA converter but I can not make it stable. I can get 5 Monitors ( the 5th one is an LG 22" ) but this always blink no matter which DP port I connect it.

Let me know if you can make your setup work with 4 and if you can get a 5th monitor stable.

Wondering what additional adapters, etc, I'll need to make 3 of these:

Work for Eyefinity on that card (SAPPHIRE FleX 100312FLEX Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
