Using Windows 7 machine. I already have two lcd monitors both with DVI connector and I have my computer setup with dual monitors using an NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290 card that has a DMS-59 connector and it works with an adapter cable.
Now I'm thinking about replacing my existing card with this one: SAPPHIRE 100297-2L Radeon HD 5830 Xtreme 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102946
Does this card support dual monitors? And if so, do I need some adapter? Which one?
I can confirm that this card works with two monitors. I have one hooked up via DVI and the other hooked up via the DisplayPort with a DisplayPort-to-DVI adapter.
In fact, although I haven't test it, I think it's supposed to support 3 monitors as long as one of them supports DisplayPort either directly or via an approved adapter.
