3 Monitor Setup - Powercolor Radeon HD 5850 PCS+

I'm about to get a free third monitor for my desktop and after researching I saw that there is some Active and Passive DisplayPort adapter and some have concerns about screen resolution needing to be the same. I would like to know if there is anything special about any of the DisplayPort Adapters and if the resolution does need to be the same?

1x Flatron E2350 (1080p) + 2x Dell SE198WFP (1440x900)

    For extending can be any size, for eyefinity the least common denominator will be chosen i.e. 1440x900, either the flatron will have black bars or the screen will be bloated.

    Active adapters I recommend for normal DP port: http://www.amazon.com/Accell-B087B-005B-DisplayPort-Single-Link-Certified/dp/B004071ZX0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1369271971&sr=8-1&keywords=accell
