Can I run 3 1080p monitors on 1 25 ft displayport cable

Because the computer I'm building is in the room below my desk, I need 25 feet of cable. I'm going for a 3 monitor eyefinity setup.

Since my video card has only 2 minidisplayport outputs (as well as 1 hdmi and 1 dvi) I figured I'd use 1 displayport cable with an mst hub, rather than run 2 displayport and 1 hdmi cable.

I'm planning to run a 6.6ft minidisplayport to displayport cable, connected to a 26 gauge, pure copper wire, 20ft displayport cable, which then connects to a displayport hub, which outputs to 3 3ft cables to each of my 3 monitors.

Doing some research regarding signal degradation, I'm worried that the cable won't be able to carry all 3 signals it's full length, but there's no conclusive statistics to tell if it will or won't.

    according to this display port maxes out at 15meters (49ft) http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/displayport_info.html but refer the cable manufacture for full specs on their cables.

    I was hoping someone could tell me if increasing the number of monitors on one cable would affect the signal quality enough to disrupt the end result displayed at the monitors, or if it would even work at all.
