So i have an asus 7970 and just bought 3 Samsung S27A750D. The monitors come with 1 displayport and 1 DVI single connections.

But i only see 2 displayport outlits on card. how do i power that 3rd monitor? thru cards d-dvi to display port adaptor?

im confused cause these monitors dont come with d-dvi..


how do i get 120hz to that third monitor with this card?

You might need to get another 7970 card(X-fire) to achieve the 3 monitor setup. Nice monitor by the way.

Short answer is no sorry mate I do not know about the monitors. Tell you what send them over to my house and I will test them out and provide a solution. :) :)

I think that the non reference 7970 cards have 3 display port connectors. Not sure if you can get an adaptor that have that do the job for you on the third monitor.

nice find madmav but the new cards are mini Displayport :S

i have 1 on DVI 1 on HDMI 1 on mini displayport to dvi with an adaptor.

dont see any reason why the new cards wont work in the same config and set things in the actual monitors menu's, or in AMD CCC should sort that

Just hook 2 mnitors to the 2 mini display ports, and the third to DVI. that is exactly how i have my monitors setup. you can get display port to mini-display port cables from Newegg. I have my 2 outer monitors connected via display port and my center to DVI. works great with NO adapter. Cables only!
