Little Question For You All.

Recommended Posts

I currently have a right with as 3870x2, a crossfire motherboard (x38-dq6) and an e8400 ect. i currently have 2 screens setup on this rig but i am simply not appeased enough, and my 3870x2 only allows for dual monitors (dual DVI).

 

if i shove another 3450 into my second pci-e slot, will i be able to run 3 screens happily? i currently run the 8.7 drivers.

Doesnt that mean you have to disable cross-fire to run the dual screens?

 

Nd are you not "appeased enough" with 2x 22" monitors? Soon you wont be turning your head, but wheeling your chair about the desk/bench to see from one screen to the other.

Too bad (as the comments allude to) that the company was a hoax. I would'a sold my cousin for that kind of display...

needs a fifth monitor, I wouldn't like having the line right in the middle.

 

I really don't know the answer to the original question. I didn't even know you could run two monitors in crossfire or sli.

Adding another Card should give you an additional 2x Monitors.

 

I was under the impression that Crossfire had to be disabled for multi monitor support though...

If you just want 3, best thing to do is get another card, run 2 secondary monitors off that, then enable Crossfire on the X2 and run your primary display off that.
