Main Monitor:

2nd Monitor:

3rd Monitor: (this is the monitor i want to add to the above setup)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236052

My question is:
Is there a way for my single graphics card setup to output to 3 monitors or will i have to upgrade my current video card or add an additional video card to support the 3rd monitor?

    Most 3way monitors require that you have 2 cards unless you have the top card that just came out then you might be ok.

    Your best bet would be a single 6950 if you can afford it.


    Did some searching over at Newegg and found this video card:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150550

    So it's my understanding that i would need to use one of the mini displayports for the 3rd monitor. In my case, with my 3 monitors mentioned in the first post, i would need this adapter:

    So my next question is, Will this setup work? Will the new 6950 be able to output to the 3 monitors in the first post with the adapter?
