Triple Monitor Help

So I was going to set up a triple monitor setup on a R9 290X. I need help on my connections, I was going to do 2 monitors on Dual Link DVI and 1 HDMI to Dual Link DVI. My monitor does 120 Hz but does not support display port. Are there any HDMI to Dual Link DVI adapters that can do 120 Hz. Thanks

  1. HDMI to DVI that can do 120hz, nope.
    Quite simply because HDMI cannot support 1080p 120hz, adapting it to DVI wont magic any more bandwidth from the HDMI connector.

    You can convert that DisplayPort into a Dual Link DVI, you have to use an Active adapter.

    So would this one work? http://www.staples.com/office/supplies/StaplesProductDisplay?storeId=10001&catalogIdentifier=2&partNumber=IM1RV5815&langid=-1&cid=PS:GooglePLAs:IM1RV5815&srccode=cii_17588969&cpncode=32-293751610-2

    Or this one ? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812816167

    The Newegg one probably not, doesnt state its Active anywhere. Staples one I cant see since I'm outside the US.

    This should work.
