My current setup is a sapphire 4850X2 which can run four monitors, but doesn't have eyefinity. I am thinking about getting a 5850 so that I can run three monitors with eyefinity, but I had a few questions.
1. I have heard that for eyefinity, you have to use the two DVI outputs and the DP, you cannot do the two DVI and the HDMI. Is this true?
2. If you can use the HDMI with the two DVI ports simultaneously, is it possible to use a DVI-HDMI attached to the monitor and have a HDMI cable from the card to the monitor? Or should I just buy an HDMI-DVI cable? (if such a thing exists)
3. If I have to use the DP, can someone recommend a good active converter that's not too expensive?
