Hello All,

I want to make sure that I have the setup for Eyefinity correct.

Crossfire Sapphire Radeon HD 7970s

3 Viewsonic 24 inch Vx2453 led monitors, each as 2 x HDMI and 1 x VGA

Planned Setup.....

Monitor 1: GPU 1 to HDMI
Monitor 2: GPU 2 to HDMI
Monitor 3: GPU 2 to Accell Mini Display port active DVI adapter ----> DVI cable -------> DVI to HDMI adapter ------> Monitor 3 HDMI port

Will this setup work?

What is your model of 7970? Can you post a link.

As long as they are all connected to one card it will work. Then you just have to configure the settings.

Both cards are Sapphire Radeon HD 7970s.

I returned the Viewsonic monitors and went with 3 of these instead with 3 Asus VW246h monitors that have both HDMI and DVI.

From what I understand the Sapphire cards come with Active MiniDispalyport to DVI adapters that I can use.

I am planning to go DVI out on the card to DVI on Monitor 1, then use the first MiniDisplayport to DVI adapter to connect monitor 2 via DVI and repeat for Monitor 3.
