PLEASE HELP: Mini displayport to an hdmi monitor...What is the best way to do it?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What is the best way to do this. I am going to do a three monitor setup and don't really know what I'm looking for. Someone told me that the mini displayport had to be powered? I'm a little confused by that I looked on monoprice and found a few cables but I don't know what to get.

I have a Sapphire 7950 it has one dvi, one hdmi, and two mini displayports.

The monitors will have two hdmi ports and a vga port.

If you need a powered adapter you're looking for a active display port adapter. Usually you do active display port to DVI but this looks like it'll do your display port to hdmi, might need to use a mini DP to DP adapter.

Here's the ones for DP to DVI
