Windows 7: 3 Screens 2 Graphic cards

26 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional (64x)
3 Screens 2 Graphic cards

So I'm thinkin of getting 2x ATI Radeon HD6950. And connect 3 SamsungTFT 22" with a resolution of 1920x1080 for each screen. Thought I'm new to multi monitors so i'd like to know how that would work.

1. Can i only run ATI cards with Crossfire or can you run them in SLI as well?
2. Will I need some kind of Monitor head?
3. Will there cards run alright with the new FPS games? (Atleast Medium/High settings)

Crossfire is AMD name for connecting two GPU's...SLI is Nvidia's name for connecting two GPU's. Each use different platforms but in the end it's the can't cross connect AMD with Nvidia, that I know of. I could be wrong on that, just haven't heard of such a way. As far as the connection you should have no problem connection all 3 monitors w/dual card setup. Pretty straight forwad in Crossfire mode...I found this it might help.
