i would assume you could, but why not get a reference design 5770 for roughly the same price ?

Dont exactly have the option to switch cards, but I picked those for the voltage adjustment...

I am not so sure you can, maybe someone with a crossfire eyefinity setup can chime in, but I think in crossfire mode you can only get outputs out of one card of the 2, thus only offering dual monitor support.


Hopefully I am wrong.

EDIT:
According to : http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/gpu50-ati-eyefinity-display-configs.aspx (almost at the very bottom)

"At this time only one graphics card can be used to drive ATI Eyefinity Technology, even when combined with ATI CrossFireX™ technology. AMD is working to address this."

looks like the answer is no.

AMD's website specifically says that at least one displayport has to be used for eyefinity configurations.

link:
http://www.amd.com/us/products/technologies/ati-eyefinity-technology/Pages/eyefinity.aspx

"To enable more than two displays, additional panels with native DisplayPort™ connectors, and/or certified DisplayPort™ adapters to convert your monitor’s native input to your cards DisplayPort™ or Mini-DisplayPort™ connector(s), are required. "

Also:
http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/gpu50-ati-eyefinity-display-connectivity.aspx

"Up to two DVI, HDMI, or VGA display outputs can be combined with DisplayPort outputs for a total of up to six monitors, depending on the graphics card configuration and the operating system. Wider display connectivity is possible by using display output adapters that support active translation from DisplayPort to DVI or VGA."

since there is no displayport on the card itself and they specifically mention a maximum of 2 DVI, HDMI or VGA outputs, I think the answer is no.

Sorry man.

Well, regular 5770 cards have 3 outputs, so while in CF you only get the outputs of one card, you can still use Eyefinity + CF since most 5xxx series cards have 3 outputs.

The problem is the 5770 the OP chose appears to only have 2 outputs, not the usual 3, which is really odd....
