    As for BF3 and Crysis 2? Neither are CPU bound and rely HEAVILY on GPU horsepower esp. at 2560X1600...

    To answer your question on whether you can Eyefinity? YES...
  2. This is straight from the AMD setu FAQ


    'You can connect up to two non-DisplayPort monitors at one time to an AMD Eyefinity technology-enabled graphics card using non-DisplayPort connections or passive DisplayPort dongles. To enable and drive 3 or more non-DisplayPort monitors at one time, the additional non-DisplayPort monitors must be connected with an active DisplayPort dongle.'

    The answer depends on whether or not any of those monitors have a display port.

    I assume you're going to be using DVI to the monitors right? Like the following image illustrates~



    ...If so then yes it'll work.
  4. thanks for the help everyone . im not sure if the display port on ebay is passive or active.

    I think you'll be fine... it's 7 bucks so it's not much of a risk. You can always ask the seller a question... brand would be nice I can't seem to find it. From the looks it appears to be a bizlink.
  6. thanks again ,i asked the seller so i just have to wait .
