This is a repost but sorry didnt get an answer that was useful.

I have an Alien Aurora R4 with 2-1GB AMD Radeon HD6870 Cross FireX enabled graphics cards. I am running windows 7 pro. I have tried the AMD web site though they talk about 3 monitor set up they dont show you how:

Did you follow thru & read the requirements for Eyefinity or were you scared off by the fact that you may need to purchase a card? I didn't look up your current card specs (because of the generic model # provided), but if one of them doesn't have a display port, you're out of luck (see rule # 2).

From AMD:

"Connecting multiple monitors for AMD Eyefinity technology couldn’t be simpler. There are four easy rules to remember:

1.The first two monitors can connect to the graphics card with any display output on your product: HDMI, VGA, DVI or DisplayPort.

2.The third (or greater) display must be connected to the graphics card via DisplayPort.

3.If your monitor does not have a DisplayPort connection, you will need an inexpensive active DisplayPort adapter for it. DVI to DP adapters can be had for less than $30 USD.

4.Every family of GPUs supports a different maximum number of displays."
