I'm looking to add a 3rd monitor to my system. As I understand it, the 780g chipset cannot drive both DVI and HDMI at the same time, so I need to get a PCIe card and use SurroundView.
1) Does SurroundView work without issues with fglrx? Google isn't helping me here.
2) Which video cards will work? The most descriptive requirement I can find says "compatable radeon VGA card," but what is "compatable"? Will anything with "radeon" in the name and "SurroundView" in the specs work?
I read somewhere that for Hybrid graphics I need a Radeon HD 34xx to work with my integrated HD 3200. But I don't need this "Hybrid" thing to use SurroundView, do I?

Here is the thread I started on the ubuntu forums.
I'll be trying the 8.8 release tonight.
8.8 drivers fixed nothing. Though, now I can verify the temp of my cores :P
So it sounds like I need to be happy with two monitors for now :-/ I'll be keeping a close eye on phoronix.
Thanks for letting me know
