Question about eyefinity setup with specific monitors and gpu?

I am having difficulty understanding which adapters and cables I am going to need to set up a triple monitor eyefinity gaming setup.

I am using an Asus HD 7970 DirectCiihttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121560

And the monitors I am using are Asus 23.6" 1ms as shown here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236307

My GPU has a DVI I and a DVI D and the monitors have two HDMI ports and a D Sub port.

I know I need at least one active display adapter, but how do I hook up the other two monitors? I was going to have the monitor using the active display in the center.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Ok, would it be possible to do a Dvi d to hdmi, a dvi I to hdmi and one active displayport to hdmi?

    Would it be better to use two passive displayport to hdmi and a single active displayport to hdmi?

    Also, thanks again for the help. :)

    Personally, I would get whatever was cheapest first and try that. If it didn't work, I would send the parts back.

    Sometimes what they say works on the Supported list on a manufacturer's website is far from the truth or extremely limited. The active adapters are a lot more expensive, so I would go the cheaper route first. Just make sure you are buying from someone who accepts returns.
