Reading the descriptions for the adapters, yes... As long as you don't change your monitor res below 1080 (no idea why, though).

Cheers!

Most likely no, those adapters will not work with eyefinity. To date they need to be active adapters like in cokenbeer's post. That Dell and Sapphire DP to DVI adapter are the same model just rebranded, Accbell and Bytecc have ones that look exactly the same.

This is a list of adapters that ATI says will work with eyefinity, only a hand full are on the market.

Ive had luck with this DP to VGA adapter from Bytecc, though youll have to look on another website to get it.

If seems to me that you can have two legacy connections but if you want three monitors then ONE of them must DisplayPort either natively from the graphics card (Displayport output from card to DisplayPort input on monitor).

Again, this means that one of your monitors must be DisplayPort. The adapters are for taking a video card output and making it compatible with a DisplayPort monitor.

I think this is correct.

The GreatGrapeApe spanked some noobs ass over this very issue earlier this year, conclusion of the thread was that a passive (read cheap) DP-to-VGA adapter will work with resolutions below 1920*1200...


(edit but you need active adapter if you're using dvi)

but absolutely make sure and double check that your DP to VGA dongle is within AMD's validated vendors.
