Hey All,

I've got a brand new Mac Pro (single Radeon 5870) and I'm trying to connect three monitors to it. I've got two 22in Dell's and a 19in dell. The 22's will run at 1920x1080 and the 19 runs 1440x900. However when I plug all three in (one via DVI and two via mini display to dvi adapters, only two of the monitors get recognized. I've even tried using a mini display port to Dual Link DVI adapter to no avail. Anyone have any ideas? It shouldn't be this complicated

QUOTE Thanks
