Thanks for the replies, but I have to apologize for not being clear in my question. I assumed that when c12345 stated that he had working knowledge of the video card, I assumed that he would have understood my question.

So I will try to be as clear as I can.

My goal is to have “consistency of resolution” across the 3 monitors. If I have to sacrifice resolution to get consistency…so be it.

This is what I have in possession:

-1 radeon 5450 video card (see attachment)
-3 monitors 22” each with resolution 1680x1050
-1 pcie slot on mother board
- All adapters
VGA to DVI adapter
DVI to VGA adapter
Displayport to DVI adapter
Displayport to VGA adapter

Now there are basically two conditions.

Condition A. (connections)

From video card VGA port to VGA port of Monitor 1
From video card Displayport to Displayport VGA adapter to VGA port of Monitor 2
From video card DVI port to DVI/VGA adapter to VGA port of Monitor 3


Condition B. (connections)

From video card VGA port to VGA/DVI adapter to DVI port of Monitor 1
From video card Displayport to Displayport DVI adapter to DVI port of Monitor 2
From video card DVI port to DVI port of Monitor 3


So, which condition will give me consistency in terms of resolution across all 3 monitors?

  • Condition A
  • Condition B
  • Both A and B
  • Neither A or B

If you don’t have the answer, it’s cool….no worries…since I can do both conditions I’ll just use the trial and error methodology….thx

Hi,

If by “consistency of resolution” you mean all 3 monitors with the same resolution, you should be fine, all conections will do the full resolution of your monitors.

I would keep it simple and use only the necessary adapters so, assuming you have both VGA and DVI on the monitors:

VGA on card to VGA on monitor 1
DVI on card to DVI on monitor 2
Displayport on card to DVI adapter to DVI on monitor 3

The only thing here can be a slight less image quality from the VGA connection wich you may or may not notice but the resolution should be the same and set to the full resolution of the monitors.

Hope this helps.

Yes, indeed. You were spot on! You were correct about the VGA, very subtle difference, couldn't really tell unless you were really really looking. Thanks again.
