Hi, I want to run both my 4k monitors at 3840 x 2160 and at 60 Hz. Is there anyway I can do this with my current graphics card? The monitors are: http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/monitors/LU28D590DS/ZA
and as I mentioned, I have a single R9 290. Thank you for your consideration.

Hi Per, your requested configuration is not possible unfortunately. The only ways to get 4K UHD at 60Hz is via DisplayPort 1.2 or HDMI 2.0. The 290 features only one DP 1.2 output and no HDMI 2.0 output so it only allows for one 4K panel at 60Hz. The second one can be connected via HDMI (1.4) but will only work at 30Hz.
