A friend of mine wants me to build a computer that can support up to 12 monitors for his work. Basically he does stock trading and stuff like that, which apparently requires a ton of monitors like that.
Now i wanted to ask, what would be required of set up like that?
-Would i need like 2 or 3 graphics cards? Is there an alternative
-Does windows 7 64bit support 12 monitors
I doubt he will want to use eyefinity (as in stretching everything across al 12 monitors), instead he's probably just going to want an extended desktop of sorts, so that hey can maximize different windows on each monitor.
I dont see any other way to get 12 monitors without having 6 cards lol. Isn't that essentially what eyefinity is? A bunch of displays hooked up together. You could hook it up and set it up to have extended desktops? Or no someone else make sure im right.\\
the card in the pic looks to have all ports full, I know theres something with a portswitch but to be honest the manual will have all the info for multi-monitor set ups in all the various options
but I do recall that to run monitors off both cards you do not have crossfire enabled
Can't seem to get the manual anywhere to d/l though
The port switching is something built in, like if you plug into X socket, it disables Y socket, but enables X socket to feed two monitors, I've not got mine yet so cant explain better sorry
The Mobo crossfires at x8 speed for two cards, see if you can find one thats X16/X16, fullspeed on the pcie lanes
And they are just over 29Cm long so as long as the Haf can take 12" cards you'll be fine
