I'm working on building a new computer within a month, I've got the opportunity of buying a fairly cheap ASUS HD 5970 card, however the problem is that the 3 monitors I've got have no displayport port and the 5970 card has got 2x DVI and 1x Mini-DP.
And then attaching the active displayport -> DVI adapter onto the above adapter, will this work?
So the whole thing would look like this:
Mini DP (On the card) the Mini DP -> DP adapter, then the active DP to DVI adapter and then a DVI cable from the adapter to the monitor.
I've asked on multiple forums but people seem to avoid answering the question only telling me that digital adapters won't reduce the quality output, however quality can't be reduced for something that's not working right...
All I want to know is, will this connection work, I'd rather not spend hundreds of bucks on a card only to have a monitor standing around for no real purpose.
