    I am considering buying two 6850 cards to run in Crossfire but I have questions about my monitor configuration. I run 4 screens but do not game across all 4 as they are different sizes and resolutions. I intend to just game on 1 screen that is directly in front of me but have the other 3 displays showing my other applications running. My configuration consists currently of 3 monitors using DVI-D and 1 using HDMI. Can I use Crossfire as well as use 2 DVI-D connectors off 1 card to drive two of the displays and use the DVI-D and HDMI off the other card to drive the other two displays? I can buy another DVI-D cable if needed to have all 4 on DVI-D. Can I use 4 monitors and Crossfire at the same time driving different displays like this using both cards? I don't want to buy expensive active Display Port to DVI connectors to drive 4 monitors off 1 card. This will be under Windows 7 Pro x64.

    Thanks!
