3D surround with a single Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 card.

I'm planing on getting two more screens and go with a 3d surround setup, but wondering about how to connect.
I've tried to find an answer to this, but all i can come up with 3D needs dual-link DVI ports.
The 770 card has one single-link and one dual-link, so how can i get a 3d surround with only one GPU?

www.geforce.com/whats-new/guides/how-to-correctly-configure-geforce-gtx-680-surround#2
On this guide it tells me to use both DVI and a displayport, it says nothing about single or dual-link ports.
What piece of information am i missing?

Thanks in advance

    You should, I believe, be able to use the display port option. But I think you might have to have two 770s just to have the required connections, just because a single 770 isn't enough for gaming on triple monitors by itself, much less triple 3d monitors.

    Both your DVIs are already dual link. The question now based on the link above is whether or not you need to buy an active DP to DVI to get 3d on the 3rd connection.

    Agree with DS - a single 770 isn't going to fare well at 3-monitor 3d.
  3. From your own geforce.com link:

    Single-GPU 3D Vision Surround Gaming

    Connect the three 3D Vision Surround displays to the two DVI connectors and the single DisplayPort connector, ensuring the monitor connected to the DisplayPort is using a Dual-Link DVI adapter. Finally, connect the Accessory Display to the HDMI port.

    By reading the link you provided, almost all says that its one dual-link and one single-link.
    As for the active DP: My screens don't need one, as they've got it integrated.
    Mabye i'll stick with one screen 3d or 3 screen non-3d then.

    Thanks for all the answers guys.
