Hey guys, so I would like to add another monitor to my 3-monitor eyefinity setup.
This is my motherboard :
I have 2 6850s crossfired:

For the 4th monitor I am thinking about getting a cheap PCI video card. This monitor will mainly be used for internet browsing and things such as microsoft word and excel.

Would this work? If so, any suggestions on what to get?

Thank you!

Yes a chep video card will do the job but you could consider the following

Using Presets in CCC you could setup 1 profile with CROSSFIRE DISABLED that will allow you to use the outputs on the 2nd 6850.

then when you want to play a game or use eyefinity flick to another preset.

Preset 1. Crossfire Enabled, Eyefinity Disabled (Single Screen Gaming) = Ctrl + Alt + 1
Preset 2. Crossfire Enabled, Eyefinity Enabled (Multi Screen Gaming)= Ctrl + Alt + 2
Preset 3. Crossfire Disabled, Eyefinity Disabled (4 Monitor Productivity) = Ctrl + Alt + 3
