    So I've had my build for about 7months ish and for some awful reason I can not figure this out

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150678

    I have a R9 280X 3GB

    It has 2 dvi-d
    1 hdmi
    2 mini display ports


    I've hooked up my 2 AOC 27" monitors to the 2 dvi-d ones, they work fine. Then when I go to plug in either the 1 hdmi or 1 mini display port to my 23" Acer or 23" Asus I can never get the triple monitor setup. I can disable another 27" and get them to work but nothing I do will get it to work!

    I'm willing to pay 5$+ if you can successfully get it to work.



    Is it because ALL monitors need to be matching?
    Is it because my gpu is underpowered?

    I can't figure it out

    To use more than 2 monitors with that card you HAVE to use the display port (mini in your case).

     

    You can buy a mini-DP to hdmi adapter and you'll have all three running just fine :)

    I believe it's because you have 1 monitor that is a different resolution. I went onto Tomshardware and found this post

     

    card: HIS R9 270X IceQx2
    monitor1: LG TV Scarlet 32" 1920x1080
    connected: miniDP-HDMI pasive cable
    monitor2: HP w2207 22" 1680x1050
    connected: DVI cable with DVI-HDMI pasive adapter
    monitor3: Asus VE276 1920x1080
    connected: miniDP-HDMI active adapter - HDMI cable

     

    I'm not sure if it will help, but it's worth a shot. 

     

    I'll keep hunting for an answer.

    i had alot of issues getting my R9-270X to display through the HDMI port. It took me a good few days to get it to work. For me it was a HDMI Driver issue. I had to download the omega catalyst control center and install the drivers manually. Horrible issues, i wouldnt buy a R9 again.
