i don't get the difference between Sapphire flex and the regular version. I'm torn between Sapphire 7950 regular and Sapphire 7950 flex. I am gonna be using 3 monitors, but only 1 of the monitors for gaming.
2 for 2d desktop and 1 for regular gaming.

Can't you just use a MiniDP to DVI on the regular sapphire without flex for 3 monitors?

The 2-L only has 1 DVI port.

The 3-L and Flex look identical (both have 2 DVI ports) save for the 10Mhz clock difference. The Flex DOES however come with a DVI to HDMI adapter, so if all 3 of your monitors require DVI, that would be a logical solution.
