sup guys, i recently bought a hd 5850 and i was interested about the eyefinity technology, i saw on amd webpage that i need a monitor with displayport to be able to run it and i only haave three dvi monitors, can i buy a displayport to dvi adapter and conect oone of the monitors to the displayport??

this is what i found: http://www.amazon.com/DisplayPort-Male-DVI-D-Female-Ada...

You can use an adapter like this one shown in step 2 on this website: http://howtoeyefinity.webs.com/
It is only 25 bucks but it converts it to vga, but still way cheaper and can still do hi res
