STEP 1 – Install the Graphics Card and Drivers
The cheapest graphics card that I could find with 6 outputs in ONE card was the VisionTek 7750 Eye 6 2GB DDR5 PCI Express Graphics Card. Otherwise, you’ll most likely need to have two graphics cards that are of the same drivers so you have enough outputs. There currently aren’t any affordable DisplayPort MST hubs.
STEP 2 – Hook up Your Monitors to the Graphics Card
You’ll be connecting the monitors to your graphics card using VGA, HDMI, DVI, or DisplayPort. If you want to go above 2 displays on one graphics card, you MUST either connect directly to a monitor that has a DisplayPort input built in, or use an ACTIVE Mini DisplayPort adapter. The cheapest I found them were for $24.99 at Amazon.com.
STEP 3 – Configure the Monitors in Windows 7
Right click the desktop and left-click “Screen resolution.” You should be able to rearrange the monitors and change their resolutions as needed from this area. And you’re pretty much done!
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how you can find out how to build any unit in Rome 2: Total War through the “Custom Battle” screen and utilizing the Encyclopedia built into the game. No need to look it up online (and failing to find anything since this game just got released)!
