Question Setting Up 3x1 Eyefinity w MSI 7970

Hey all,

Ok so I am finally getting around to it, I got a MSI Radeon HD 7970 and 3 ASUS 27" LED LCD Monitors that I am setting up eyefinity with, my question is for connections my 7970 only has one DVI port, but I have two Active Mini Displayport to DVI adapters. Can I use both of the Active mini displayport adapters with the one DVI? Or do I need to use a HDMI to DVI adapter w only 1 Active Mini Displayport adapter? I know weird question but I know sometimes it's the small stuff that mess's up everything lol.

Thanks.

Here is what your setup should look like:

DVI -> Monitor DVI
Mini DP -> DP to DVI
Mini DP #2 -> DP to DVI

Basically, the RAMDACs in these cards can handle multiple DisplayPort outputs at the same time.
