Can a GTX 780 run three different displays, of which two have hdmi cables and one a DVI-D on 1440p?

So I was unpleasantly surprised when my ati R9 280x wasn't capable of this feat. Apparently it could only work with a displayport adapter with multiple hdmi ports.

FYI I have multiple (passive) hdmi adapters, so the single hdmi port on the (MSI) gtx 780 isn't a the problem here.

You can get an active DP to HDMI/DVI adapter, they cost like 30$ on Amazon..

I'm not interested in buying any adapter though! And I don't have an integrated GPU in my mobo.

I just want to know if it's possible to connect three displays without any (active) adapter to the GTX 780.

No I mean, keep the R9 280X and buy the adapter..it's easier I think..

I would do that if the R9 280x wasn't broken! So right now, I'm hoping the store where I bought the R9 280x is going to let me exchange the broken 280x for something different, that doesn't need any active displayport adapter.

yes you can, just not 3 HDMI at the same time..
You can forexample get the two DVI's and a HDMI
or a hdmi , DisplayPort,DVI
or 2x dvi and DP...

Alright thanks :) 

That's another edge to the GTX 780, instead of the R9 290x.

Get the right adapters and you can or using two DVI's and a HDMI, However depending on what your running its going to slow everything down. For example, if playing a game on all three monitors your graphics card would die, however using maybe 2D less labour intensive applications could work with a game on another screen. If your just using normal applications on these monitors though then it will be fine.

Oh man, this thread is old. But I've acquired the GX 780 a while back. And everything is working fine.
I don't need any adapter, windows instantly identified the three displays. I am however, only using one display for gaming.
