X3 Monitor Setup Question Tags: Graphics Cards DVI Monitors VGA Graphics Last response: April 7, 2012 1:28 PM in Graphics & Displays Share reorx April 7, 2012 11:55:02 AM Hi, I have a Radeon HD6950 and I've currently running: Main Monitor. (connects via either displayport/dvi-2(dual-link)). 2nd Monitor (DVI-VGA). I wish to add a 3rd monitor. It is my understanding that the other DVI PORT on the card is Dual-Link DVI-2 and it is impossible to send a signal through it to a standard VGA monitor. So without upgrading monitors I need adaptors. Am I correct that the following setup should work? Monitor 1: DVI-2 (Dual-Link). Monitor 2: DVI adaptor->VGA cable. Monitor 3: Displayport->VGA adaptor Thanks.

Just make sure that the displayport/VGA adapter is ACTIVE not passive. Check the link for approved dongles. http://support.amd.com/us/eyefinity/Pages/eyefinity-don... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
