If I want to use three monitors can I use a passive Display to DVI adaptor if I am just using extended desktop (not eyefinity)?

nope, as teh video card (i am assuming 5xxx series) only has 2 TMDS chips for the digital output

you can either get an active adapter for display port to dvi

or

use a passive adapter and then use a dvi->vga adapter and use vga for one monitor
