A newbie to this site, but you might as well add me to the eyefinty club list. I was using a Sapphire 5870, but just upgraded to a XFX HD5970. Still working out the bugs with fan speed control (fixed) and driver issues (beta 4/5).
I used 3 LG 23" briefly with the active DP/DVI adaptor but upgraded to 3 Dell 2709W. Besides the upgrade in size, going from TN to PVA helped with viewing as well.

Not only am I enjoying eyefinity with games, but all the extra space on the desktop is a godsend.

Can I use the Dell P2210H as my displayport monitor to hook up my 2 acer monitors for eyefinity? What else will I need besides this display port monitor, will I need special cables?

Moreover, it comes with an array of video connectors to meet your various video connectivity requirements including DVI (HDCP) and DisplayPort (DP cable is optional) which delivers no jitter high quality digital image and excellent color uniformity.

you need one display port ready monitor like the dell your suggesting, As well as a displayport cable to plug into the monitor from the graphics card. The other two acer screens can be hooked up via DVI cables. Thats all you need

Ok, I gotcha so the displayport cable is the one port on the GPU that looks similar to the HDMI slot then? Then the other two monitors connect to the two DVI slots underneath like normal?

No , I just copied and pasted my specs. I had it in crossfire before the eyefinity setup. Now the other card just sits there useless. unless I disable Eyefinity.

So, yeah, right now crossfire is disabled. and I'm anticipating a driver that will support 2 X 5870's
