  1. AMD card only supports 2 legacy port.

    So you can only connect 2 of any of these (DVI, HDMI or VGA).

    The rest must be through displayport.

    If you don't have display port on monitor, use an active adapter (must be active), and use spliter (support up to 3 display on single display port.).
  2. Crap! I just check the price of those spliter (they are call display port hub btw) and they are expensive.

    Oh well, since you are using 5 monitor, I don't think money is an issue for you
  3. @ nikorr, it doesn't go that way. No single GPU from AMD is able to drive up to 5/6 monitors unless it's Eyefinity edition.

    @Pyree, using a hub is different than using Eyefinity.

    @ OP, you need to get a HD 5870/6990 to support your 5 monitors setup for Eyefinity.

    I checked and I know now too : )

    Thanx
  5. Shouldn't this thread be transferred to Graphics section ?
  6. It could : )
  7. This topic has been moved from the section Windows 7 to section Graphics & Displays by Nikorr
  8. Ok correction:

    You need "MST displayport hub" not just any "displayport hub" to support eyefinity.
  9. Had a look at those hub, they are expensive and little choice. Also the support res is not good either. Not the best way to get 5 screen eyefinity.

    Get a 6990 like ilysaml suggest.
