Hi, just picked up a i7 2600K and a Gigabyte Z-68 (XP-UD3-iSSD) and an Asus 6870 video card, I am trying to run 3 monitors, I have one hooked to the intel HDMI output (monitor 1) and monitors 2 & 3 are on the DVI slots on the 6870, windows boots and runs fine, I get an error of "not able to identify video card" I can't run any hardware accelerated programs, even VLC I need to change the output, no DirectX/DirectDraw or even default settings will work. Lucid Virtu still picked up the 6870, but my Catalyst Control Center is dissabled when I loaded my intel drivers and hooked the HDMI monitor up. I'm wondering if this setup is even do-able without needing the expensive display port monitors. This system is not really for gaming as much as photo/video work, so I don't need 3D running on 3 screens for games or anything. Any idea's of where to start would be appreciated!
Well I've solved the error message (Asus smart doctor program), but not the problem with not being able to run D3D/DX accelerated programs or video outputs.
