Default Eyefinity Setup

I have an older refurb hp desktop that I'm using as one of my development workstations and have been piddling away with a single 22" 1680x1050 monitor and just picked up 2x 19" 1440x900 monitors to use in a triple monitor config, and just dropped in a spare GT210 I had laying around.

Turns out the onboard video is disabled when discrete graphics cards are installed, I'm not too keen to dump a lot of money in this to get it working, as it's only a Core2 Q8200 with 4GB ram and a 120GB SSD.

Before I jump the gun and purchase the parts, here's what I'm looking at and from my research should be all that I need to get things running in eyefinity for the desktop:

GPU: Buy the VisionTek Radeon HD 5450 512MB GDDR3 Video Card at TigerDirect.ca
Adapter: Buy the StarTech Mini DisplayPort to DVI Active Adapter at TigerDirect.ca

What I intend to do is run DVI -> VGA adapters to the two 19" monitors (they only have DSub connections) and MiniDP->DVI to the primary 22" monitor.

Thanks in advance
