    After my inquiry above, I found this Sapphire HD 5770 FLEX, available at Overcklokers & can be seen here:-
    http://www.neoseeker.com/Articles/Hardw ... 5770_flex/

    "......Sapphire has decided that you should be able to power three DVI monitors on a single Radeon HD 5XXX card. They've proved this by releasing the HD 5770 FLEX. The FLEX is the very first 5XXX series card with the ability to power three DVI monitors right out of the packaging......"

    I had a lot of complicated & expensive gen from people, this (£119) grfx card seems to do my triple trick even by atter newbees like me. OR is there a catch to it I wonder? .....nick

    Sorry but please disregard above requests for help.

    Overclockers verified to me:-

    1. that Ati Radeaon 5770 Flex will run FSX, it does not !!.

    2. that all cables needed for 3 screens are in the box, none usable was found, & 4 cables needed extra £100.

    Posted Today, 09:26 PM from a forum helper:-

    Okay so I did some googling on AMD's website and found this in the Eyefinity FAQs:
    Quote: What Operating Systems does AMD Eyefinity technology work with?
    At present Windows® Vista and Windows® 7 support AMD Eyefinity technology. There are plans for Linux support in an upcoming update to AMD Catalyst™ software. There is no support for Windows® XP.

    So XP isn't supported for Eyefinity, unfortunately


    CALAMITY, so after so much trouble I went to, & a lot kind forum helpers, I came almost to huck it & find XP whon't do.

    Cheerio all.
