The main monitor does not have to be, you just need just one of your three monitors plugged into the display port. When you set your resolution you will be able to set which monitor is in what physical location.
The monoprice ones do not work as they are a passive passive display port to dvi/hdmi. What you need is either a passive active or an active adapter.
Cheapest around i've found is at ncix by Acell
