2 dvi, 1 hdmi, 1 displayport. Can I just use a HDMI to DVI cable? Or will that not work with 3 screens?

This is for sure the regular Display Port and NOT the mini display port.

The one Arakasi Listed would probably work best. I have used a few Sapphire active adapters and they work well.

Either one of those would work. I would buy either brand if i had the need for one. Pick one that's in stock, make sure it indicated "active" and then connect it up. Note* the display port to dvi will only work with a dvi capable monitor. Most attempts to try and convert to vga from the adapter fail. Although i dont know why you would want to convert to vga anyway.

I think this may work but from 7000 series and before i know that display port was required to do eyefinity. I can't remember if AMD remedied this in there R series cards, but if i were you i would just stick with the display port plan. More chance of success.
