    just tried connecting a second, lower res monitor to do some multitasking but with no luck.

    tried all 3 free dvi ports and clicked on Detect Displays in catalyst.

    is this due to cf or semething?

    Did you reboot after plugging in the second monitor? I used dual monitors forever including with a 4890 Crossfire setup.

    Edit: Both monitors must be connected to the same card.
    guitarfreaknation says thanks.

    I did it with a single 4890 without rebooting.

    Is it necessary with a cf setup? That sucks. lol
