I am trying to run a 3rd monitor on my computer and currently have 2 sapphire radeon 5770 HD graphics cards that are crossfired. I know in order to run the 3rd monitor i need to have a ACTIVE DVI to Displayport connector but I am trying to figure out if I need a single link or dual link adaptor. Also, am I going to have to run eyefinity in order to run the 3 or if I will be able to run them as 3 separate screens. TIA for any help Gam

you only need a duel link active displayport to DVI adapter if you are useing a monitor with a resolution higher then 1920x1200.

You can also either run 3 screens in extended mode, or a 3x1 eyefinity setup.
