Bear in mind the following footnote posted on AMD's website about this product:
*Important: When using mini DisplayPort-to-singlelink DVI adapters, quad output is divided into two pairs (displays 1 and 2 and displays 3 and 4). The displays used in each pair must be identical (with the same manufacturer and model number) and must be identically configured (with the same resolution). However, the display pairs do not need to be identical to each other.
This is actually not a serious problem. I called AMD Level 2 Tech Support to enquire about this issue, since I use 2 17" monitors (one Dell using VGA; one NEC using DVI-D) and one 19" monitor (Lenovo using DVI-D). The two GPUs onboard this card can each be split across 2 displays (4 total). Each grouping of 2 can work independently, but if there are differences between the monitors within either grouping of two, you will need to purchase an ATI Cerified Active adapter for one of the displays within that grouping (maximum reqirement of 2 active adapters). Four mini displayport to DVI-D passive adapters come with the product.
If you need an analog VGA signal you will need to purchase an active Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter. For example, Accell B101B-002B UltraAV Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter. Don't opt for a cheaper passive adapter. AMD told me to purchase the active version, which converts the signal and also allows you to use a passive adapter for DVI-D or DisplayPort with the other port in the same grouping.
AMD prefers the Accell brand for active adapters. There is also a version for mini DisplayPort to DVI-D:
Accell B087B-006B UltraAV Mini DisplayPort to DVI-D Single-Link Active Adapter ATI Certified
By the way, there is a really expensive active adapter version that also has a USB cable for power supply that outputs the mini DisplayPort to DVI-I (both Digital and Analog signal simultaneously), enabling a person to attach a VGA dongle to the adapter if needed. This seems to be a waste. You could buy both of the above mentioned adapters for less money, and you would keep your USB ports free (probably your power consumption too).
If you're using mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort with DisplayPort Monitors, none of the above considerations matter. The possible need for up to 2 active adapters only applies to VGA and DVI monitor connections.
Sorry for the detailed explanation, but this information is not easy to come by. I'm no expert, but I figured something was a bit funky here. Thankfully, AMD staff is readily available to help you to understand their products. If you need more detail on this issue, though, you will likely need to have them approve a transfer to their Level 2 Support.
But read the small print on the product data sheet - out of the box, it works with matched pairs of digital (DVI) monitors: seriously, the same product number, not just the same resolution. And if you have analog (VGA) monitors, you'll need to buy an active adapter like this one - Accell B087B-006B UltraAV Mini DisplayPort to DVI-D Single-Link Active Adapter ATI Certified (Black) - those cheap passive adapter plugs won't fit, or work.
I have one matched pair of DVI monitors and a pair of VGAs. Even with $50 for two adapters, this board is still a bargain, and when I decide to upgrade from the VGAs to digital monitors, it'll be fully compatible without the adapters.
First suggestion; read through the reviews here. Ybeard and others have really explored the depths of this card's connectivity, which is why I decided on this card. In my case, I am connecting to four Dell 2408WFP monitors via mini display port to DVI, with the exception of one, which is going through an IOGear MultiView Ultra+ GCS1758 switch sa VGA. All the monitors work flawlessly with the card except through the KVM.
Since the IOGear MultiView Ultra+ GCS1758 does NOT have EDID support, the ATI drivers cause continuous on and off screen blanking. According to IOGear, the GCS1808 DOES have EDID support, which is what the ATI drivers need to communicate. So, I bought one of those. Only time will tell (if I remember I'll post a follow-up).
BTW, I bought the Accell active adapter due to ybeard's comment that that is the one AMD suggests. It was a more pricey active adapter, but when you are talking $30 vs about $20 for others, the headache of dealing with something that *might* not be compatible is not worth it (to me).
Another suggestion; if you install the ATI drivers (and you will need them for multiple monitor support), ONLY use the ATI catalyst software to set up your displays and desktop arrangement. It's been my experience that using the native Windows 7 arranger (right click on desktop, select Resolution) and the ATI Catalyst together do not play well. I had to restore my machine from an earlier state to un-confuse it. Perhaps in time I will find a less drastic way to do so.
