    Hello
    I have my video cards cross fired right now both are ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series, but I am only able to run two monitors at a time. I can't seem to get all three working. The cards do have AMD Eyefinity but only showing two monitors.
    Any ideas how to get all three to work?

    To get 3 monitors working you'll have to use a displayport, HDMI, and DVI. If your cards have all 3 connections. All the monitors will be plugged into the top card also.... I have 3 5830's in tri-fire/eyefinity, and thats how my setup works...

    Yep, or the more common setup for 5870's is 2 DVI and a displayport
