Ok im trying to do a triple screen set up. The 2 monitors on my desk are hooked via hdmi to mini displayport adapter attaced the my 7870 and the other monitor is through a dvi cable. The tv which is behind me is connected via hdmi cable plugged into the graphics card.

I want to be able to hook up all three but use the plasma primarly for gaming and leaving the other 2 monitors free. Is that possible?


Currently CCC only allows me to use 2 screens at a time and if i want to use the 3rd it makes me replace it with 1 of the 2.

Ok .... so you kinda confused me.

7870 -> Mini-DP to HDMI adapter -> Monitor
7870 -> Mini-DP to HDMI adapter -> Monitor
7870 -> HDMI -> TV

or

7870 -> Mini-DP to HDMI adapter -> Monitor
7870 -> DVI -> Monitor
7870 -> HDMI -> TV

?

You need to use an active adapter for the mini-dp -> whatever connection. If the adapter is not active, you cannot use all three screens.

^ As said above you MUST have one of your monitors on a active DisplayPort adapter there is no way around it. So I gather you are not wanting to do a Eyefinity but instead 3 independent monitors? You will still need one of them on DisplayPort but that would make more sense than trying to do a Eyfinity with that mismatch set of monitors.
