So would this card support 5 monitors without a Displayport MST hub?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131471

I am under the impression that this video card and others like it, that have two DVI ports, along with the two displayports and HDMI, will not support 5 monitors. Is my assumption correct?

I learned this the hard way....I presumed with 5 outputs, there would be support for 5 monitors, but there is not. One of the DVI ports shares it's signal with the HDMI port. So, you can have one or the other. That means there is only support for 4 monitors. 2x active display adapters, 1xdvi, and 1x dvi--or---hdmi. I also thought that since one dvi port was dual link, that I could split it in two. I argued with AMD techs and lost. I am far from an expert, and welcome anyones input on this issue. I have given up on an MST hub, and am going to go with an hd7970 lightning edition. 4x mini display ports, and 1x dvi. I have 5 50" plasmas and currently have 3x1, but I want 5x1, yes, in landscape!! Maybe I'm crazy, but I want to be completely enveloped!!
Anyway that's just my 2cents, and I'd love other comments. Good day!!

Good to know, I'm hoping to keep this as accurate as possible.
