I recently bought 3 matching 1920x1080 monitors:

All connected to my single 6950:

I am not looking to play any high quality graphic games on it, i just want to be able to have a 5760x1080 Eyefinity setup, but here is what my problem has been. I originally tried this two 1920x1080 displays and one 1920x1200 display(all different models), and had several problems including not being able to choose the correct(highest) resolution that the monitor supports. The other problem was that the 3rd monitor was showing an out of range signal at certain resolutions when i was toying around with it. Anyways, scratch all of those problems because I'm starting over with the 3 monitors mentioned above, using the one video card mentioned above, and of course i have an active display port adapter to support the 3rd monitor:

So my question is, Am i going to have any problems getting that magic 5760x1080 resolution with these components? Any tips or tricks?(certain order i need to plug things in, etc.) Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

You must to make sure the monitors are exact same models and this you need it so they can match up.

The first two would be via DVI and the 3rd would be via active mini displayport to dvi adapter.

You shouldn't run into any problems with these new monitors. I would plug the adapter into the middle monitor.




I looked at the other thread you made and i can almost guarantee that the problem was the monitor with 1920 x 1200 resolution while the others were 1080.
