Can I run two ATI FirePro 2460 using PCIe 1 To PCIe 16 Converter ? Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Product Last response: September 27, 2011 5:53 AM in Graphics & Displays Share georgetok September 27, 2011 5:13:05 AM Last year AMD came out with ATI FirePro 2460 Multi View, a low profile card for Stock traders. http://www.amd.com/us/products/workstation/graphics/ati... I want to use two of them for an 8 Monitor ( 1920x1200 Dell U2412M ) setup for stock trading. I have only one PCIe x 16 slot & there is one PCIe x 1 slot emtpy. Can I use PCIe x 1 to PCIe x 16 converter to plug in second Card & get 8 displays ? http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Would my system support it ? What are the downsides of doing this ? If this works, I want to add a 3rd card in another PCIe x 1 slot for a 12 Monitor display. Would that be crazy ? Following are specs of my System. Dell XPS 8300 One PCIe 16 slot ( It has GeForce GT 530 that I cann throw away ) 3 PCIe 1 slots ( One is Free ) ( Other 2 have sound card & TV Tuner Card & I can throw them away too if those slots are needed ) 460 Watt Power Supply i7-2600 Processor (3.4GHz, 8MB Cache) Chipset Intel® H67 8GB (4X2GB) DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz Memory NVIDIA GeForce GT530 - 1GB GDDR3 (VGA/HDMI/DVI) Windows - 7 Ultimate ( 64 bit ) Thanks More about : run ati firepro 2460 pcie pcie converter HugoStiglitz a b U Graphics card September 27, 2011 5:23:03 AM it "may" work but u could just go with an eyefinity 6 card (6 display out) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129184 georgetok September 27, 2011 5:53:48 AM HugoStiglitz said:it "may" work but u could just go with an eyefinity 6 card (6 display out) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129184 That is what I had in mind but I will need two of them for an 8 monitor setup & there is not enough room & no second PCIe x 16 slot available.
