    once i have the two screens up and running sure (i generally put it one the left of mmy second screen wich comes down to a "middle" of the two wich i love

    but the rx 480 comes equiped with tons of display ports and only one hdmi and nothing else. and i don't even have display port capable screens. so that's either an adapter or an upgrade for me. we'll see

    You can buy a dp to hdmi cable which work fine as dp and hdmi are both digital formats. You'll only need a more expensive 'active' adaptor if you want to connect to an older analogue screen like dvi-i, or vga.

    You can go direct from DP to a digital DVI-D screen. If it's an older DVI-I (analogue) screen you'll need an adapter in between to convert the signal, although those aren't that expensive. I've done a lot of work with multi screens- you'll be able to populate *all* those outputs if you want (and with a DP MST Hub you can go up to 6 screens on most recent AMD cards, apart from the entry models which only support 3).

    Ha, fair point. Not when I can help it. That's too hard-core, even for me. :)

    are you sure it's not misguided?

    Sometimes it's really hard to come to terms with the fact you're in a manipulative/abusive relationship.
