So i have 3 27in monitors, The center is a 1440p asus rog IPS panel. The other Two sides are 1080p samsungs. My question is do all 3 of my monitors have to be plugged into a display port for me to be able to do surround. I ask because when i activate my surround and scale my center monitor down to 1080p i can only get 3000 X 700 thats the only resolution available, i cant force a new resolution or anything. I ask this because my center monitor is diplay port my left monitor is HDMI to displayport and my right monitor is HDMI. Am i limited because 1 monitor is HDMI? Help please ill be happy to answer questions.

Hello Operationurmom (funny name) :welcome

I would suggest looking at the following link and input your video card configuration. This will tell you how you should connect your monitors.

If this doesn't help, can you please give the exact make and models of your monitors and video card.
