Yes, that Accbell DP to DVI adapter will work with any of your three monitors and 5870, its on ATI's list of validated adapters.

If your aim is to use these monitors in Eyefinity gaming, they must be the same native resolution otherwise the smallest will force the larger screens to use the smallest's resolution. If you just want 3 screens in extended mode you will be ok.
