I've got everything I need in my newegg wishlist and i'll be buying things as they come in but I have one last question before I pull the trigger on anything.
My video cards Video Out: VGA female, HDMI Female, Mini DP female.
For eyefinity does it matter what the monitor inputs are? 3 I've got are D-Sub in, do I need DVI or does it not really matter?

also I need 2 adaptors, I know the miniDP to vga one is active, but do I need an active adaptor for HDMI to VGA?

Should I switch anything out?

I have one simple question referring to eyefinity. I've asked many places and locations and posted many threads all over computer communities asking this question but have never received a proper answer.
The question is: Can I use all VGA input monitors for my eyefinity set up?
My HD7970M graphics card has 1 VGA out, 1 HDMI Out, and 1 Mini Display port out. But the 3 monitors I will be able to buy are all VGA inputs.
I can get the correct adaptors to change all the ports on my laptop to VGA out including an ACTIVE Minidisplay port to VGA adaptor.

As far as I understand on the FAQs page this should be theoretically possible? But it was talking about DVI monitors. Do I need DVI monitors? or can I use the VGA monitors I will be getting?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. I can't find the answer anywhere, and I would like to know before spending money that can't be replaced.
Thank you so much.
