There are many tutorials online showing how to easily configure these to take 3 monitors. but the Catalyst Control Center software is a totally different version. This latest version looks completely different.

Correct - eyefinity requires 2 DVI and 1 DisplayPort. HDMI + 2 DVI will not work because you can't run 2 DVI with an HDMI. You can get an active DP-DVI or DP-HDMI adapter and run it off that.

Like I said in the beginning. I have an active display port adapter. It's actually the one manufactured by the card maker Sapphire. And I can get all three monitors to work within CCC by swapping them. But only two at a time.

I don't believe you have to have a display port on your monitor. Otherwise why would you need an active display port adapter? And everything I have read (extentsively) says you don't. You just have to have the active display port adapter.

If the adapter was bad why would it work when I swap the monitors? All three also work during the boot process. Not all at the same time. But in sequence.

The thing I don't understand. Is the CCC shown in all the tutorials is a completely different version than the current one.

Just to update. I have one of the monitors connected to the VGA port. One connected to the DVI port. And one connected to the display port via active display port adapter.

Here is my card. It has one vga, one dvi and one display port. And it has eyefinity. Several have posted in the reviews about their success using 3 monitors:

So your saying go from DVI on the monitor to the VGA on the card for the one? Because it is hooked up that way. The only one that is coming out of the vga on the monitor is the one that is hooked into the display port adapter.

Meaning I have two monitors going DVI to the VGA and the DVI port on the card. And one monitor going vga to the display port via a display port active adapter.
