    Just as I thought I understood eyefinity, they made cards that drive 4 monitors.

    With the 6870s are you able to connect three monitors without doing eyefinity, eg 2 x 1920 * 1080 monitors and a 1280 x 1024 monitor.

    If that combo is possible do I still need an active adapter for the third monitor?

    Eyefinity is for 3 monitors. With the 3rd monitor only being 1280x1024 you do not need an active displayport. :)

    Hmm, ok but does the 6870 allow you to do 3 without eyefinity, cause I think the 5770 doesn't.
