So my brother has 5 monitors, he is using 3 for gaming while the 5 will be for normal usage.
I believe for the third monitor and everyone after that, it has to be an active DP adapter right?
He is using an Sapphire 6950 Rev 1 (6970 now) which has two DVI's, 2 Mini DP's and one HDMI. Catalyst 10.10 enabled 5x1 so should be possible.
Monitor 1 - DVI to DVI
Monitor 2 - DVI to DVI
Monitor 3 - Mini DP active adapter to DVI
Monitor 4 - Mini DP active adapter to DVI
Monitor 5 - HDMI to DVI?
Thing is am confused about Monitor 5? It needs to be active as well right?
Saying that, can all 5 monitors work just by their normal collections in extended desktop mode without switching to Eyefinity mode?
If so that's fine as well, since he is only gaming on three monitors, the other two or one will just switch off I believe if that is the case.
