Need help connecting 3 monitors.

February 17, 2012 at 23:35:52
Specs: Windows 7, 8gb
I have an AMD 5670 2gb graphics card and three 20' Samsung SA300B monitors (1600 by 900 pixels) and i was looking at connecting all three of them.
I was looking at a 'Triple-header to go' but they are very expensive and so i was looking for another way to connect.
If i were to use a UGA-2K-A (a usb to dvi conector) for one of them and conect the other two direct to the GPU; would it work?

(I run off Win 7 HP 64bit)

How many video-out ports does your card have? I just did a quick search & the ones I found all have 3 ports - HDMI, DVI, & VGA. What's the problem?

I don't think you can use both HDMI and DVI at the same time. It is either, or. I could be wrong.

You can use a splitter on say the VGA to clone two monitors.

Do you want to display different graphics on each monitor?

I wasn't aware of that device. Looks like it should work.

Graphics Cards with 3 outputs, usually only allow 2 simultaneous connections..

"Graphics Cards with 3 outputs, usually only allow 2 simultaneous connections.."

That's why knowing the exact card is important. I took a shot at it in response 2 but the OP didn't comment. But if the card supports Eyefinity, it should support 3 indpendent displays.

"ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology

◦ Three independent display controllers
• Drive three displays simultaneously with independent resolutions, refresh rates, color controls, and video overlays

◦ Display grouping
• Combine multiple displays to behave like a single large display"
