Question about Displayport

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just got 3 monitors today but I forgot to buy an active display port adapter. My local computer store only has active displayport adapters not mini-displayport. My video card only has mini-display port. So what I was thinking is that can I buy the active displayport adapter (not the mini one) and hook that up to my video card via display port to mini-display port cable that came with my video card?

Monitor -> dvi to active displayport -> display port to mini-displayport -> video card

Thanks!
