Eyefinity with radeon r9 270x with three monitors that are only vga and dvi

So i just picked up some aoc 23 inch ips panels for eyefinity, the r9 270x has two dvi ports, hdmi port, and a dosplay port. Problem is: my monitors only have dvi and vga ports, can i use a hdmi to dvi cable for the third monitor?

  1. Of course you can. Do your monitors support HD? Also what type of DVI ports are there on the monitors?

    i do have those adaptors. i herd some where on a different form that there was a special one that has to be active for the 3rd monitor to work

    my set up
    dvi-hdmi-dvi
    dvi-hdmi-dvi
    hdmi-dvi

    then later i want to hook my 50 led tv up also. im getting a display port to hdmi adaptor in a couple days.
  4. No, the special active converter is to change a digital signal into an analog signal if you require a VGA connection to a monitor.

    In your case all monitors accept digital input (DVI) so you do not need an active converter.

    I don't know if your card will be able to run four monitors.

    Well I found a video where a single HD 7870 runs four monitors in Eyefinity 4

    Technically the R9 270X is the same card and has the same output options so it should run your four monitors.

    I'm thinking about running a similar setup, can i ask why youre having to use dvi-hdmi-dvi instead of just dvi-dvi?
