Ok firts things first you'll need a Display Port Adapter like this http://www.amazon.com/Accell-B087B-005B-DisplayPort-Single-Link-Certified/dp/tags-on-product/B004071ZX0, which BTW is the same one I chose because of Certification and no bad reviews at all like with the XFX one(Most reviews state that it's last a month and dies). Next you can't use 2 DVI Ports at the same time But you can use Display Port, HDMI, DVI to get your triple Monitors up. This is the configuration I had to use. Also if needed you can get an HDMI to DVI cabel or converter really cheap which would be if your monitor doesn't have a HDMI connector.

i got the active display port adapter (http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=93496&CatId=467) and still have issues setting it up. do i need anything else, hardware or software wise? i am running 1 with hdmi, 1 dvi to active display port and 1 with d-sub that has a dvi adapter on it, with is being changed to hdmi with a dp adapter Tuesday. will this temp setup work?
