Hello !

i need to run 6 monitors, 3X2 (5760x2400) on my 2 cards:
1 Sapphire  Vapor-x HD7970 6GB (2 Mini Display ports, 2 DVI, 1 HDMI).
1 MSI 280x 6GB (2 Mini Display ports, 1 DVI, 1 HDMI).
MotherBoard: Asus Rampage II Extreme (using PCI-E Cable Extender - since the Vapor-x is too Wide and i'm out of free space for the other MSI 280x card).
Windoiws 7 64 bit.


the problems are:

1. eyefinity will not work with 2 cards ! 

     i tried to create 2 eyfinity groups: each group for single graphic  card using 2 Mini-DP and DVI.
    that gave me 2 virtual screens.
    but when i tried to make 3rd group in order to unite these 2 virtual screens, my windows crushed each time !!!

if there's no alternative solution, i am wondering if Mini DP Hub could help, and if it will support the resolution i need (5760X2400 as 3X2) and good performance FPS ...


2. i was hoping to enable the Crossfire option.
   and it means i can't connect the monitors only to the primary card (which is HD7970).
   any kind of solution for that?

PS. i moved from new 2X GTX760 4GB  to ATI because of the Eyefinity!
    (nvidia surround doesn't support more than 3 monitors as 1 virtual screen).
    i am stuck and i rather not to move to 2X ATI Radeon 7870 .

i mostly use it for for flying practicing at microsoft flight simulator - FSX,  (i am pilot student), but i will use it to other games too.

 

kindly your help !

Thank You
