my situation, i have 2 monitors right now. I like them. But i would like to get a HDTV and wall mount it. I would then plug it into my computer and play movies on it. Problem is, i only have 1 slot for a video card. Right now, i have an 8800gt, i cant plug another connection into it so im thinking about upgrading to the 5850. BUT i just found out that to use 3 monitors, you have to have one of the connections be display port. Its sort of a bummer. But whatever. Nothings perfect.
So here are my 3 monitors (when i get the hdtv)
22in lcd w/ DVI and HDMI connections
17in lcd w/ integrated rgb connection.
37in lcd w/ HDMI or DVI (prefer hdmi though)
None of them have a display port. So one of my questions is, will an adapter work with the eyefinity tech? Then, what monitor should get the display port? I don't think it really matters, but im thinking i would throw it on the 17in. Because that monitor will never be gamed on. Just desktop work.
What do you think? Any input is appreciated. Thanks
Try out this DisplayPort to VGA adapter. It works perfectly, I use it. I've tried others and they flicker or drop a display during resolution changes or on power cycling computers. This one works without any of that mess, in fact I think it's better than most of the Active DisplayPort to DVI adapters if you don't need DRM on the VGA attached monitor.
