Hi,
I recently got my hands on a Radeon HD 6450 graphics card (pci express 2.1 bus). I am trying to get 3 monitors going on it. I see slots for a dvi, vga, and hdmi. Is it possible to get 3 monitors working for this? I've seen/read stuff about eyefinity but that seems to involves a display port. Just looking for a good way to get 3 monitors working, any suggestions would be awesome.

Thanks

Hey,

I got a Asus HD6450 silent yesterday but I'm having a had time configuring it with my 3 screens.
I can get 2 screens working at the same time, either HDMI+DVI OR HDMI+VGA OR DVI+VGA, but to the 3 together!
The Eyefinity tool allows only 2x1 layout...

So if any body knows how to set the 3 screens on this card, it would be great !

Thanks

From memory, you need an ACTIVE displayport dongle to run Eyefinity.

I'm not sure if you're trying to game on this setup, BUT I don't think your VGA card has the power to run titles across 3 screens.

Hi hunuok,

It's not for gaming.
It is very confusing, there is 3 port on the card, but it seems this active displayport is required on the HDMI connector.
Though I can connect the HDMI direclty to a screen. So does it mean 3 screens cannot be configured unsing the HDMI direclty ?
It would be VGA+DVI (via a displayport connected to HDMI)+DVI ??

This is disappointing...

HD 6450 is not supported by Eyefinity, only those models support Eyefinity
HD 6900 series & the following :
AMD Radeon™ HD 6870 GPUs
AMD Radeon™ HD 6850 GPUs
ATI Radeon™ HD 5970 GPUs
ATI Radeon™ HD 5800 Series GPUs
ATI Radeon™ HD 5700 Series GPUs
ATI Radeon™ HD 5670 GPUs
ATI Radeon™ HD 5500 Series GPUs
ATI Radeon™ HD 5450 GPUs
ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5400 Series or higher GPUs
to run Eyefinity on 3 monitors, you must have a one monitor that supports a DisplayPort, or an active DisplayPort to DVI/HDMI compatible

I see, too bad !
Anyway as it treats the 3 screens as one big screen, the resolution hight is the same for all monitors... I my case it would not be good as I am using a 17", 19" and 23"...

Thank's for the reply.
