Re: Advice on AMD Eyefinity

I’m not sure about you question but here is one of my system configurations:

Intel Core i7 3930K Sandy Bridge-E 3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 130W Six-Core Processor
Asus P9X79 Deluxe LGA2011 motherboard
Added Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 kit for a total of 32GB of system RAM (8x4GB)
HD 6870 video card (upgraded from GeForce 8800 GTS 640)
Asus VE276Q, VE278Q and VK278Q triple 27” (1920x1080) Widescreen Monitor setup (Dual Link DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort)
Corsair Force Series 3 120GB SATA III SSD 2x
Asus BD ROM / DVD Burner
Antec EarthWatts 650 PSU
Antec P180 case

These Asus 27” monitors all have DVI, HDMI and Displayport. Therefore I simply connected them as follows:

DVI to DVI via a DVI cable
HDMI to HDMI via an HDMI cable
DisplayPort to mini DisplayPort via a Displayport to mini DisplayPort cable.

If you don’t own all the monitors yet why not simply look for monitors with the native support of the interface you want? You’re talking about ~$150 for a monitor and ~$50 for an adaptor, why not just buy a good ~$200 monitor,….?
