This is what you need. A little more than $30.

One of the monitors in Eyefinity has to use the Display Port. So you could use a mini dispay port to DVI active adapter. From what I've gleaned, the Apple branded ones aren't guaranteed to work, while the Accel ones like I linked are.

It doesn't say anything about being an 'active' adapter, which it has to be. I'm assuming if it doesn't state that it is 'active', that it's passive, and won't work for Eyefinity. It;s a shame you only have a gift card for Sears, because Amazon and Newegg both have the one I linked for under $30.

If this is part number B087B-004B you bought, it will not work for Eyefinity.

Just in case you need to get a replacement; this one will guarantee to work (note the part number Accell B087B-006B) ;
