    Default Crossfire - Dual monitors?

    Hi peeps, just a quick question.

    I am thinking about going crossfire Radeon HD4870 in 3 weeks time, if I can do that, will I still be able to have dual monitors?

    Actually they can now Not sure which drivers enabled it, but SLI can indeed now run dual monitors.

    Triple monitors require either a second card, or else an ATI 5000 series card BUT one of the monitors must have a DisplayPort connection.
