Hi,

I just bought and hooked up three Dell E2311H monitors (DVI) and two XFX 7850s. I wanted to confirm that I have the card to monitor connections correct. I have first 7850 connected to monitor 1 & 2 with straight DVI cables. So first 7850 has two DVI cables connected. The second 7850 has a miniDisplayPort <-> DVI to third monitor. So second 7850 has a single miniDisplayPort connection.

 

Is that correct?

Thanks,

PTay

No thats not. All 3 monitors need to be hooked into the same video card.

I have changed to two DVI and one miniDisplayPort out of first 7850.

 

Thanks for quick reply.
