Eye infinity with 5850 setup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, So i just got 2 new 27" samsung monitors, And it is awesome,

So now i want a 3rd one

my monitor supports VGA, and HDMI,

my Graphic card have: 1 HDMI, 1 Display port, 2 DVI


right now, my 2 monitors run with an adaptor from DVI to VGA cable, and runs just fine


But what i've read is, that the 3rd monitor needs an Active Display port adaptor,
so i found this one http://www.club-3d.com/index.php/products/reader.en/product/displayport-to-active-dvi-dual-link-cable.html
that cost about 100 USD in the local shops


would that work out? then just plug that adaptor into the Displayport on my GFX, and then from the DVI, plug in another adoptor to VGA, and then plug the VGA into my screen?

Anyways, please give me some input in what would be smartest
