I have the sapphire 7870. I have it configured that way.

1x HDMI
1x DVI
1x mDP -> DVI adapter

The card will run 4 monitors.

Split the display. Do not duplicate it.

drag a game icon that you want to play to the second monitor and double click on it, it should open only on the second monitor. Then open a browser or anything you want to do in the first monitor.
