I recently purchased an extra monitor (already had 1 monitor and my TV connected to my PC) and I want to use both of the monitors and the TV.
I have the two monitors connected via DVI and my TV via HDMI.
As you guys most likely know, you have to connect at least 1 monitor via DisplayPort if you use 3 monitors.

My video card came with a little adapter (Mini DP>DP) and I wanted to get a regular DisplayPort cable and connect it to one of my monitors.
Would that work? Does that adapter have to be active and is there even such a thing as active and passive Mini DP>DP adapters? My monitor does support DisplayPort by the way.

Graphics card and monitors:
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 6870
Monitor: 2x Dell U2312HM FullHD IPS Monitors + 32'' Philips FullHD TV

My setup for those who are interested: http://i.imgur.com/lcQQOPY

I just want to be sure before I buy a €30 cable and it ends up not working. Also sorry if I posted this in the wrong section of the forum.
