Default Re: how to enable 4 monitors on 4870 x2

It will only support up to 2 monitors. Crossfire usually only supports one, but it can go to 2 with the new drivers, I think.

Just get this and hook another 2 monitors to this.

You could probably disable a card somehow. But you are still limited to 2 DVI ports. You could get splitters to clone each port, but since there is a lack of DAC the extra 2 monitors would just be clones.
