    How to run 3 monitors on Radeon HD 5700 graphics card?

    Hi everyone, I have a desktop with windows 8.1
    My graphics card is radeon hd 5700. I always ran 2 monitors with this computer, but recently I got a 3rd one. I tried plugging 2 DVI and 1 HDMI onto my graphics card but only 2 of them have display. When i try to extend my display to the 3rd mointor i get a error message saying "unable to save display settings."

    Can someone give me a quick idea how I can extend my desktop onto the 3rd screen as well?

    A quick Edit: After doing some research on active display port converters, my problem now is that will my 500W PSU be able to handle this?

    The ebay shop that sells the active display port cable says i need 750W PSU at least. But my PSU is only 500W. Do you guys think I can handle it with no problem?
