Could you help me to find a solution to connect multi DVI monitors to a GeForce GTX 1080 ?
I like to upgrade my Windows 10 PC with a GeForce GTX 1080 Graphics card. This card has 3 DisplayPorts, 1 DVI-D port and 1 HDMI port. I have 4 ‘çlassic’ LCD monitors with a DVI-D input and like to re-use these with the new Graphics card. The operating mode for all display devices will be “extended desktop”.
The LCD monitors I have are:
3 x 1280×1024 (SXGA) @ 60Hz in surround setup
1 x 1920×1200 (WUXGA) @ 60Hz standalone
All monitors have a DVI-D and VGA (analog) input.
I have tried to figure out what adapter cable I need to connect the 3 SXGA monitors to the 3 DP outputs of the graphics card. But there are all kind of cables, like active and passive etc. Also a lot of different stories that some combinations of monitor, adapter cable and graphics card will or won’t work. I suggest that the best option for the WUXGA monitor is to connect it to the DVI-D output of the graphics card with a normal DVI to DVI cable.
Could you advice me what I should choose from the Club 3D adapter cables to use in my situation. Or will my proposed setup never work with any cable ?
