Dual 7970 Cards for 3 Monitor Eyefinity... Display Adapter required?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im just about done wit my build, and In it i have two Asus 7970 DCII cards, plenty enough power to adequately render 3 Monitors for Eyefinity. So my next Question is how... From what I have ready I believe I need a PASSIVE DISPLAY ADAPTER with TWO DVI ports, and then another PASSIVE DISPLAY ADAPTER with a single DVI port.

Is this true? Of will I need ACTIVE adapters?

Also in the Long run, I will be adding a fourth monitor (just waiting to buy a new TV for my old rig to go on then Im stealing its monitor) as well as a Third Graphics card next summer. So I would prefer to purchase all the required adapters up front now rather than buy an adaptor with one DVI and needing to replace it with one with two DVIs when I add the fourth monitor....

So, as of now Im planning on purchasing two of these... any objection from any veteran AMD Owners?

Im officially switching over from NVidia, so sorry for my ignorance :-p
