Solved 7950 4 monitors Tags: Radeon Connection Monitors Sapphire Graphics Last response: November 21, 2012 11:09 PM in Graphics & Displays Share soybeanpaste November 21, 2012 1:12:39 AM So I recently bought the sapphire 7950 and for some reason I didn't take the time to look at the pictures for the connection ports. This model only has 1 dvi port, 2 hdmi's and something else. I need to get 4 monitors ( or possibly 5-6) hooked up for some graph work I have to do. My question is, What type of connectors and such would I need to buy to get my 4 monitors hooked up and which connectors do I need for my future 5th and 6th monitor?

You need some mini display port to active DVI adaptors to run your 4 monitors. soybeanpaste November 21, 2012 1:42:33 AM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... that Related resources 2 times Geforce 7950 GX2 to drive 4 monitors - Forum 7950 CF 5 monitors ? - Forum 4 displays on a ATI HD 7950 - Forum The AMD Phenom II x 4 965 with the HD 7950 - Forum 7950 runs hot with dual monitor setup - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Please correct me if I am wrong =/ Well i know my sons 7950 can not run that many Two points: 1)Even if it could it would not work for gaming I recommend no more than 25% overclock if it proves stable though. 2) HD7950 is NOT even enough for triple monitor unless you sacrifice quality settings. In my opinion. soybeanpaste November 21, 2012 11:06:49 PM I brought the 7950 back and paid the difference to get a gtx 670. After doing some research it seemed like I was going to be spending more money on the 7950 to get a multi-monitor setup. the 670 supports 3 of my monitors right now. I read that it can support 4. So my next question would be, would gtx 670 in sli support 8 monitors? I am not planning on using more than 1 monitor for gaming. I like to have multiple monitors for multi-tasking outside of video games. soybeanpaste November 21, 2012 11:09:22 PM ah nvm. I figured it out. soybeanpaste November 21, 2012 11:09:46 PM Best answer selected by soybeanpaste. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
