    Okay I have three 19in LCD monitors that I am trying to run in DVI. I have two hooked up to a PCI-E dual dvi x1300pro and the other to a PCI 9200se. Now I know neither card is the best but I just need this to work, not game. Can this be done b/c I have tried and either get the 9200 monitor to work and be recognized or the 2 x1300 monitors working.

    Thanks so much for your help guys.:wiggle:

    If your using two different video cards in the same computer I don't think it'll work. Maybe there's an adapter or something but the only way I've heard of getting more than 2 screens is running two exactly the same video cards in SLI/Crossfire.

    okay got it to work but transferring video between the two screens/cards doesn't happen. Not too dissappointed though. But it can be done.

    are you trying to do your setup with Windows display manager, or Catalyst Control Center? I find the options in Catalyst, while a bit cumbersome, to work the best at varying setups.
