I uninstalled my ati driver, cleared out the ATI with driver sweeper and installed CCC Version 2011.0908.1344.23115.
Monitor to graphics card
Monitor 1: VGA > DVI adapter
Monitor 2: DVI > DVI
Monitor 3: DVI > Mini displayport
The best configuration to setup Eyefinity for your 6950:
Monitor 1: Native DVI > DVI
Monitor 2: Native DVI > DVI
- If it doesn't have native DVI then must use > VGA-MiniDP Adapter for resolution 1920x1200 [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Accell-B101B-002B-UltraAV-DisplayPort-Adapter/dp/B0041O7XHY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1318381377&sr=8-2"]Amazon.com

The above adapters are validated by AMD. If you buy other than the above, it's a hit or miss and not guaranteed to work for Eyeninity. Refer to the model number if you want to pick it up from Frys.
