ATI Radeon multi-monitor question
I would like to support 4 screens (a tv mounted above 3 monitors).
I currently have the Radeon HD 5870 which supports 3 monitors, and my motherboard does not have another PCI express slot, so I can't crossfire two 5870's.
If I buy a crapy PCI slot video card such as the Radeon 5450, can I crossfire it with the 5870? Will that hurt my performance? Will that allow me to use 4 monitors? Will the new card cause issues since it won't be as powerful, maybe make 1 of my screens lag and the 3 off the 5870 card run fine?
Any other suggestions I didn't think of?
I am running Windows 7.
I appreciate your support, you guys are always so helpful and informative!
