This is what I need help with: I have 3 2560x1440 IPS Monoprice 10509 monitors and want to run them all off my laptop at their native 2560x1440 resolution. However, they only accept Dual-Link DVI-D input.

My laptop has a Mini DisplayPort (V. 1.2+), HDMI 1.4, and 4 USB 3.0s.

So my main question is, what cables/adapters could I buy to do this?

Here are some items I have come across in my research in attempt solve this problem in no particular order:

DVI to HDMI cable that supports 2560x1440 resolution:

USB 3.0 to DisplayPort adaptersupporting up to 2560x1600 resolution:

Active Dual-Link DVI to Display Port adapter supporting up to 2560x1600 resolution:
http://www.amazon.com/Accell-UltraAV-B087B-002B-DisplayPort-Dual-Link/dp/B002ISVI3U/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1385867356&sr=1-3&keywords=active+dual+link+dvi+to+display+port

Any ideas? I would appreciate any help at all, because I'm stumped. I would like to avoid purchasing active dual-link dvi to displayport adapter cables if possible, because they cost a lot and buying multiple of them = $$$.

Thank you!
