I currently have 2x GTX 460 graphics cards, and both of them have 2x DVI ports on them so I've been quite lucky with my dual monitor setup. However at the end of the week I'm buying an AMD 7950 and it only has 1 DVI, 1 HDMI and 2x Display ports. So I ask, what is my best option in this situation? I have 2x BenQ G2420HD monitors which have a VGA, DVI and HDMI port on the back. So would I best off doing 1 of the monitors via DVI and the other via the HDMI (because I believe HDMI is the same standard as DVI, just with audio added?) or should I get 2x miniDisplayPort to DVI adapters and run both monitors off the same "type" of output?

The reason I'm asking this is because I want consistency in colour/refreshrate across both the monitors like I currently have running both directly off the DVI ports on my GTX 460s.
