Was that display port adapter an active one? You need an active displayport adapter that can actually transfer displayport signal into HDMI signal, not a passive one that simply rearrange the pins of this connector to another, to set up Eyefinity using 3 monitors without displayport.

Edit: your gigaware adapter is not an active one, that why Eyefinity setup failed to work.
