I know that ATI.com says that the Radeon HD 5450 supports three displays. My question is, how does it support three displays without DisplayPort? I see only VGA, HDMI, and DVI on 5450s.
This is from the AnandTech review of the AMD Radeon HD 5450:
I've highlighted the part you'll be interested in. Basically, without DisplayPort, there's no Eyefinity and, therefore, no 3 monitor support.
You have to get a Radeon 5450 with a DisplayPort in order to do three monitors. They do make them, but you have to be careful not to buy the wrong one.
Also, if you do not have to a DisplayPort monitor, you need to buy an approved adapter or the third port will most likely not work (it sometimes still does with other adapters).
