    Just out of curiosity: Why would you want to use any display hub when you can directly connect 3 monitors to your graphics card?
    AFAIK every HD7850 is capable of eyefinity out-of-the-box. Just connect one display through DP and the other two through DVI and you're good to go, right?
     
  3. Yes that is very true. When I had that same card I used to play Flight Simulator X with 3 screens without need for any special equipment. Just used Eyefinity and it worked fine!

  5. After you are done I would be curious to hear about your experience. I have a 7870 and would have always though it not to be powerful enough to run trippel a decent frame rates. (I already have to tune down AC a little bit to get decent frame rates on a single full HD)
