Hello!

I have a qustion i cant find the answer to.

I have a Dell XPS 8300 with a dual AMD Radeon™ HD 6770. I also have 4 monitors with only dvi and vga. The connections on the card is: 2 dvi, 1 HDMI and one DisplayPort. I have understood that there kan only be connected two legacy monitors at once. So i connect two displays to the dvi connections. I have also understood that if you want to connect more legacy monitors you can connect them to a DisplayPort using an active DisplayPort to dvi adapter. My question: how to i connect the fourth display? Is it possible to split the displayport; or can i use the HDMI via some kind of active adapter?

 

Another question: The discription of the card says that you can connect up to five monitors. How could i do that if i had four monirors with displayport.?
