Hello all, 

I am inquiring on the topic of multiple monitor application. Currently I am running an AMD HD 7970 on 2 monitors. I have found that gaming is rather annoying on 2 monitors because my center of view is directly in between the 2. So, what I am planning on executing is installing a 3rd  monitor to resolve my current issue. My 7970 runs 2 monitors very well, but I am concerned on what will happen if I install a 3rd monitor. Currently, my main monitor is connected via VGA and the 2nd via HDMI. With a 3rd monitor option.. will i need to upgrade my card? or get 2 separate cards running via crossfire x? Any and all information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
