Eyefinity with 3 HDMI monitors

January 4, 2013 3:15:59 PM


so i have 3 new monitors, all have HDMI and VGA connections, and i'm looking to use Eyefinity, without touching the VGA.

I've got a reference 2GB HD 6950, Crossfired with a Sapphire 2GB HD 6950 (

I know I have to use at least one of the display ports, and I know I need an active adapter. So here's what I'm looking at doing:

DVI-->DVI/HDMI Adapter-->HDMI Monitor
HDMI------------------------->HDMI Monitor
Displayport-->Active DP/DVI-->DVI/HDMI-->HDMI Monitor

First question, which GPU would be best to use as the primary card?

Secondly, would the third monitor work with this configuration? as i really want to avoid VGA like the plague.

I'm not fussed about audio out of the other monitors, the center monitor is fine, and i've got a headset.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot in advance
