I'm running 3, 19" hanns-G monitors with standard resolutions of 1440x900. In eyefinity I will be at 4xxx/900. Will single link DVI cables be alright? Do I need Dual link DVI? How do I tell if my current DVI cables are dual link if so?

dual-link DVI cables are only necessary for resolutions above 1920x1200

Ok, so it won't matter that the resolution in eyefinity will be over 4xxx? Just so long as the monitors themselves do not exceed 1920x1200?
