I am new to Eyefinity and just acquired an AX6950. My old PC had 2 cards, with a total of 4 DVI outs, so connecting a DVI and 2 VGA monitors was a breeze with 2 DVI to VGA adapters.
I now want to connect my old monitors to the new card, but I am little lost on the adapter I need.
I am trying to see if the following configuration will work, before I go ahead and order the adapter.
- Connect DVI monitor to DVI out
- Connect VGA monitor to DVI out with a DVI to VGA adapter
- Connect VGA monitor to mini DP out, with an active mini DP to DVI adapter, and a DVI to VGA adapter
The reason I want to do it this way, instead of buying an active mini DP to VGA adapter, is because I know I am going to order 3 new monitors soon and want to ensure I can reuse the adapter I buy with the new monitors.
Also, I am not a gamer, I simply do a ton of multitasking because I work from home. So, having 3 monitors active is a must for my productivity. I just need to be able to have different things running on each monitor, I will never use the 3 monitors to run a game in 3 screen mode.
