I guess I should have added between $135 to $200 each LCD. Thanks! for the replies so far. I am looking into them.
9_breaker, that LCD has a rounded bottom which would be bad for portrait mode. Nice deal for non portrait mode tho, thanks.
WR2, can you (or someone) explain the display port, or post a link that explains it? Everything I find just confuses me more. The 6990 comes with like 4 different adapters. ONE of each type. Is there a "best" route that you can recommend? It would be great to have 3 of the same LCDs with 3 of the same adapters, no? Very confusing.
The p2211 looks like an awesome deal, but no display port input. So would I need 3 of the DVI adapters / converters?
I think your 6990 should has 1 DVI and 4 mini Displayports? You could use 1 DVI, and the mini Displayport to DVI that should come in your cards accessory pack.
Oh yeah, i forgot to ask about active vs. passive. I guess this is the part that is sending me into confusion, mostly.
I had to double check as well From the AMD Website: • A maximum of 2 legacy monitors (VGA, DVI or HDMI) can be enabled simultaneously, provided that each monitor is connected either directly or via a “passive” DisplayPort™ adapter/dongle. “Passive” adapters/dongles will NOT support more than 2 legacy monitors. • To enable support for more than 2 monitors, “active” DisplayPort™ adapters/dongles are required (or monitors with direct DisplayPort™ connectivity must be used).
Could I assume, that I need the single DVI, one passive converter, and one active converter? Or both active, both passive. I clicked on the chart you linked, and looked at the replies. There is a lot of confusion there as well. My 6990 tho, is newer, and it is easier, than the older design of the 5870. Its just the 4 minis. Which adapters are needed for 3 or 4 lcds? OK I will wait for some replies. Its just all exciting!
Awesome WR2 that is the best answer, to THAT question. I think I have the adapter thing nailed! Still looks as though you have the LCD answer nailed as well! I like the p2211h is the answer! Its VERY nice, does portrait mode with small bezel, energy star, and I love my dell LCDs. Ill wait for more input.
I needed to confirm there was an active adapter in the accessory pack and it looks like there is one active and one passive. So your connections would be 1 DVI, 1 active from the accessory pack and 1 active ordered online.
