Hello guys, I recently upgraded my PC by buying a second graphic card. Now am running successfully on Crossfire with 2 HD 6950 My drivers are all set up correctly. (running Battlefield 3 on medium with 70-100 fps on online mode)
But the problem is that i want to attach a 3rd monitor. (i already have 2) My linked (second) card does not recognize the 3rd monitor.
The problem is also that if i put only one monitor on the second card it does not recognize it too. So the problem is not about the 3rd monitor but all in inputs of the 2nd graphic card are kind of disabled.
Please help me out and i appreciate you time:)

In xfire the second card's outputs are disabled by default -- there's no way around it. If you want a third monitor you have to connect it to the top card via hdmi or one of the display ports. If your third monitor has a DVI plug, you will have to purchase an adapter to connect it to the card.
I have 6850s in Xfires - ran into the same problem at first.
Thanks for this info drjga, I have a passive DP adapter but is not working As i read i have to buy an active one that unfortunately costs around 100euros here. Thanks again!!!!!
