Multiple Monitors

(First post!)

I got my Aurora R4 on Monday and I am looking to hook up some other monitors.

I'm running Win7 64 bit Intel Core i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60 GHZ with with 16 GB of RAM and Dual AMD Radeon HD 7800.

The back of my video card looks like....


But there are two cards, so I have exactly twice that.

Currently I'm hooking up one monitor using the (bottom) DVI connection. However, I want to hook up two other monitors also using DVI. How can I get this done?

So this morning I picked up some cables - Mini Display Port to VGA. (That's all they had.) Came home, plugged it in, notta. Poop. Played with it for a few moments, then pulled the cord out of the Aurora. Son of a bitch - the plug that went into the Aurora was broken. I bought two of them, so I got the second one working - works great. Next time I'm out I'll get more cords.

Thanks for the help and advice. Next up - how to get COD to play on this monster.

are you goin triple screen which i high advise. im running 3 acer 19 inch screens off my duel 6850s. your mini display adaptor has to be an active adaptor or when you get in a game it cuts off the third or second monitor. also in your ccc of your card there should be a tab labled amd eyefinity multi display group click on that and click creat eyefinity group there you will go through the setup and bam done. o and you can only run multi screens off of the top card as its your main gpu. but eyefinity works in pairs of 3s if im not mistaken

Looks pretty sweet. Like the art work. :)

On my big gaming rig I have a monitor and a 46" LCD TV. I have a second monitor that I am going to add but I have been lazy and it is still sitting in a box. So it will have three which works because it has two DVI ports and a mini HDMI for the TV. I just need to find time I guess.
