Eyefinity Adapters

Is display port necessary for a triple monitor eyefinity setup? Or can I just use the 2 native DVI and 1 HDMI and passively convert to DVI?

If display port is necessary, what is the cheapest possible active display port-to dvi adapter for eyefinity? I found one on amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Accell-B087B-005B-DisplayPort-Single-Link-Certified/dp/B004071ZX0/ref=sr_1_24?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1283613509&sr=1-24
But it is "yet to be released" It is cheap and compatible, but is there anywhere else I can order it now at that price? Is there another similarly-priced adapter I could use? Where can I buy it?

    a display port adapter is necessary for eyefinity. there are some cheap dp->vga adapters for low resolutions (usually below 1920x1080). there are a few new ones coming out for dp->dvi, but are yet to be released (i think thats the one you linked)
  2. Yes the connector isnt released yet so you will have to wait Toms ran a news article on i last week i think it was.

    Mactronix
  3. These ones?


    Source.
  4. ^The $30 AMD ones are the ones to look for.
    Older $100 Accell/Dells would work, but its $70 wasted.
  5. I found the yet-to-released Accell adapter IN STOCK on NCIX.com:
