As the question says i need help.Atm on my 6950 i ahve a 21in monitor with DVI output and my TV monitor(3D) 50in on my pc HDMI output.. I am thinkign to buy 2x Dell S2340L Black 23" to use with my 21in for eyefinity and my TV will have independed output since i use it only for movies etc.The Dell monitors now have only HDMI outputs and i am thinking if i use the DVI output for my 21in screen my HDMI for my TV ,can i use my mini display ports for my 2 new monitors?? WIll eyefinity work?

EDIT What if i keep my TV on HDMI port leave my 21in on DVI port.Then i buy an adaptor HDMI to DVI for 1 screen and for the other a HDMI to display port..Will this work?

Both of the new monitors will need active mDP to DVI adapters. Assuming your cards has two unused mDP.

And eyefinity will be off picture ( no easy way to describe it). Since your using different size monitors the pictures won't align even with bezel compensation it would never look right.

Just saying.

Yeah. I got three monitors, but they are all identical 25.4" screens. You probably want to get same/similar size monitors.

OK i thought it and i will buy another monitor 23" same one Dell...The thing is that i will ahve 3 monitors with HDMI outputs adn i ahve thought os a small solution i will tell it and i need your opinion to see if my thinkign is right..Since Eyefinity need at least 1 monitor to be in a DP then if i take 2 adapters HDMI to DVI i will eb ok with the 2 monitors and then i will only need 1 active adaptor that will be DP to DMI... am i correct or not?

(in conclusion i will have my TV monitor in HDMI port 1 of the monitor with active adaptor in the DP slot adn the 2 other monitors with HDMI to DVI adaptors in the DVI slots)
EDIT my card has 2 DVI, 2 mini display ports adn 1 HDMI...those are the outputs.
