I prefer the accel adapters.

Newegg carries a few off brands that works, basically the extras from HIS and from other video card companies

otherwise Accel is your best bet, except for DP to HDMI those are not certified, i have one, and it doesn't work

but the DP to DVI or DP to miniDP they are all good, i'm using 6 of those

I will probably go with using 7950 ports 1 DVi 1HDMi and 1 mini dp to DVI active as to save the cost of another adapter which would let me bypass using the HDMI port - Will I have scaling issues because of HDMi? I guess i will find out

My mini DP to DVI active choice is between the two below I am leaning towards the accell but alot of post in this thread recommend the XFX one

You don't use HDMI, you convert it to DVI and there is no issue. HDMI and the DVI both have the same clock gens anyways, so you set one of them up as the primary and center panel.

I'm so excited! Got them for $450 shipped, nice little saving.

Newegg has the XFX double D 6950 for $179 plus BF3 & deusX for free and the MSI twin frozr III 7950 for $329 AR and it would cost me $30 for the game.So I am looking at $179 versus $359
I have always been a console gamer but would like to check out eyefinity and especially BF3 but will the 6950 even run BF3 in eyefinity? Do I need the 7950 to be happy or can I get by with a 6950.

Since I was going to purchase BF3 anyways I am really looking at $150 versus $329 for a 20-30% performance hit.
I pretty much just talked myself into the 6950 to educate myself on and see if I am into eyefinity and gaming on a PC while waiting for the 79xx series price to fall. If I am into it maybe I can pick up a 7970 for >$300 or a 7950 >250 on black friday and sell my used 6950 for $125-$150 to someone who wants to CF.

For eyefinity get a HD 7950 and just overclock it. here is a user running a Sapphire HD 7950 950 Mhz overclocked to 1160 Mhz and in his opinion the HD 7950 at those clocks easily was better than HD 6950 CF.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1253670/any-benchmarks-for-single-7970-680s-running-at-5760x1080#post_17572917

Gigabyte HD 7950 OC (900 Mhz) is available for a good price . USD 309 after a promo code and mail in rebate. If you want a better card get the Sapphire HD 7950 950 Mhz edition. The MSI twin Frozr cooler is not as good as the Gigabyte windforce 3x or Sapphire dual x. Its not a good option for very high overclocking.
