Default Re: can i connect four monitors to one cpu?

You need two Graphic processing units or (GPU, Grapic cards, Video cards, etc.).

You would set up the cards to mirror your single display, or extend your desktop which ever.

You could do a max of two on one card. (As far as I know. There might be some cards that allow three.)

Default Re: can i connect four monitors to one cpu?

or you could just dig up a 3870 X2
like this

see ^ 4 DVI Ports

but if you are trying to do this with a laptop you are up a different creek my friend
and your paddle is back on shore
if you are using VGA, a couple of these will work
obviously your new
so that link will show you what a VGA looks like
and my pic shows you what a DVI port looks like
take a look at your pc and let us know what you have available
if you could take the side off of the case and take a picture of the motherboard that would help us out alot as well

i beleive you need 2 cars to use 6 screens, eyefinity only uses 1 DVI, 1HDMI, and 1 display port. = 3 screens per card.

The HD 5870 supports Eyefinity with up to 6 monitors on 1 card.

I guess you need a special version of the card or something tho, mine only has 2 DVI ports, 1 HDMI port, and 1 VGA port.

Default Re: can i connect four monitors to one cpu?

has anyone clicked my link yet?
apparently not
much less this link with PICS of the SINGLE GPU SINGLE CARD



now if your card (assuming you have one) is capable or not
isnt up to me and i have no idea
but judging by that pic in my link
(the first one that loads)
it would be a special card
with a special port also
looks nothing like HDMI
