I'm not entirely sure on that but I believe that is the case (I wouldn't know though as I run a FleX card which allows me to forgo the need for Display Port even in eyefinity)
I don't think that's correct. I only post this to hopefully be corrected if I'm wrong. I'm about to do the same setup discussed in this thread (but with a 6770) and have the Accell (" DisplayPort to DVI-D Active Single-Link Adapter Model B087B-005B, $30.99 newegg) recommend by ATI on the way. I would luv to not have to use it (short of buying a DP monitor).
I'm still not clear on the two card setup options. Is it best to do a "crossfire" setup or not for a standard triple monitor setup (ie. no eyefinity), and what is possible (crossfire/no crossfire) eyefinty wise with two cards? I've read about issues with display adapters (dieing, lines, etc..) and think a two card setup would be better long term....
