Yes, this card DOES support and you can use whatever connections you like. The monitors doesn't have to be of the same size, but there is a upper limit of the resolution. You're ok with 2x 1440x900, and I think you're ok even with 2x 1920x1080 if you use only the digital connections.

Check this and see the picture on he right: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface#Digital The DVI connector on a device is given one of three names, depending on which signals it implements: DVI-I (integrated, combines digital and analog in the same connector; digital may be single or dual link) DVI-D (digital only, single link or dual ...

It turns out the NVidia Configuration utility was the culprit. It disabled the second monitor once I connected the third, causing it to be unavailable to the standard Windows monitor configuration. There was no mention from the utility saying it disabled the monitor. Enabling the monitor in the NVidia utility solved the problem.

NVidia claims this card can connect 4 monitors but only at a certain resolution. Checking other forums like Tom's Hardware Page, people state it won't or not recommended. Other thing is instead of using two DVI port have you tried the the HDMI port. So one using the DP, one using the DVI and another using the HDMI. You know the saying a chain is only as ...

You'll need a dual-link DVI adapter, instead of a single-link DVI adapter. After reading many forums from multiple places, it sounds like that's the problem you're having. I found a post from Apple that you can read here The title of the forum post states your exact problem, and I saw the same thing being said on a few other forums (non-Apple forums)

Dual-link DVI is only necessary for very high resolution displays. If your display is 2560x1440 or higher, you'll need to use dual-link. Otherwise, a either dual-link or single-link cables will work. Bear in mind current AMD cards (Radeon 2xx series and above) do not accept DVI-I connections. You must use a cable with a DVI-D connector on the graphics card ...

Assuming that the hardware part is all ok (monitors, cables etc.) then most probably you need to extend your desktop onto 2nd monitor. Depending on your OS there are different ways to achieve this. See here, here or here (perhaps the best) for different explanations about how to do this for different versions of Windows.

If I am not mistaken I believe your ViewSonic owners manual states that you should set the resolution to 1920 x 1080 in the Catalyst menus and then set the monitor scaling to 1360 x 768.

You may find your monitor has TWO DVI inputs - such as on my LaCie 526. Only one of them is digital - which explains why the other is limited to 1280x768. Switched to the other connector and I instantly got 1920x1080 :-) (I had auto select enabled in the monitor's menu, so check there too if you have two inputs and one doesn't appear to work at all)

You can't make Windows audio output to multiple devices without some kind of virtual / software getup like VACs. I actually find VACs simpler to understand, but here's an alternative you might like to look into: https://youtu.be/BNhGRSc4oY0 It works pretty much the exact same way as VACs would, listening to one device and then pushing it back out to ...
