So i'm completely new to building computers and i'm thinking about building my first computer soon. i'm thinking of getting an AMD 7970 with 3 ASUS MX239H monitors. the specifications of the items are listed here.

ASUS MX239H - Newegg.com - ASUS MX239H Silver / Black 23" 5ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor, IPS Panel 250 cd/m2 80,000,000:1 Built-in Speakers
AMD 7970 - Newegg.com - ASUS MX239H Silver / Black 23" 5ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor, IPS Panel 250 cd/m2 80,000,000:1 Built-in Speakers


the thing is the GPU only 1 HDMI, 2 mini display ports, and 2 DVI ports. but the monitor each 1 d-sub and 2 HDMI ports.
so in order to get a triple screen set up, would i have to buy some adapters? if i buy adapters and use different ports, wouldn't it affect image synchronization or quality amongst the screen. for example, a triple screen all using HDMI would have better sync than triple sync where one is using HDMI and others using DVI? how do people normally set up triple screen monitors with for gaming with one card? i know nothing about this stuff so i'm just asking beforehand before buying the stuff and possibly regretting it. thanks in advance for helping a noob

YOu can only use Digital ports for Triple display
There will be no loss of quality between DVI/HDMI/DP at all even with adapters because it's all digital

For my setup I have 2x 7970 in crossfire (soon to be 3) all monitors are connected to my 1st card, 1st monitor by DVI, 2nd monitor HDMI to DVI cable, 3rd monitor by ACTIVE Mini-Displayport to DVI adapter (you have to use at least one active displayport adapter to run eyefinity,
