Hey guys

I wanna setup eyefinity in the spare room, i got the tellys and a asus hd7850 2gb card im hoping to achieve a triple monitor setup but not on the best graphics im not expecting my computer to pull out graphics from heaven just wanna rip around with the setup and see how it is..

The 3 tvs are 1x LG 42" (computer currently runs this 24/7 has HDMI ports and VGA.)
1x AWA 42" (has HDMI ports or VGA)
1x LG 42" (has hdmi ports or vga)

My 7850 has 2x mini display ports
1x DVI

Basicly will this work?? (theres only 1 computer sorry if it seems confusing i didnt know how else to put it)

COMPUTER---> Minidisplay ---> HDMI --------> TV (USED FOR 2x LG TVS)

with the 2 lg tvs i understand i need the Minidisplay to HDMI adapter and with running the triple setup i need an active one.. im sourcing an active ones now as we speak just waiting to hear back from a few sellers.. but if i achieve the active mini display port adapters to HDMI will this work??

thanks for taking the time to read my post and shed some light on the matter if you can

cheers once again...

in short, yes it should be able to do it. If your going to be gaming, bf3 and crysis settings will need to be dropped. Looking at your specs, i would suggest that you upgrade the power supply and either upgrade the video card or go crossfire with 2 7850's.

If I had 3 tv's, I would certainly be trying it out to see how it worked. As long as your not having to buy anything, its worth trying out. Only cost you time.
