Hey Guys,

I've just recently built my machine:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
GPU: Saphire Radeon HD 5970 2GB
PSU: 850W Corsair
RAM: 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 4 x 2GB
MOBO: 890FXA-UD7
SSD: Revo 120GB (2x 60GB running in raid 1)
HDD: Wester Digital 1TB

Heres the problem, I finnaly turned 14 so i could get a job and buy another monitor (a third), but i cannot decide on which adapter to buy, the 3 monitors are G245H's and they have a VGA, DVI and a HDMI. Where as i need to use the display port on my GPU. I went on ebay and saw that there were DisplayPort to DVI (or VGA), but these were not active. Is this going to matter with my GPU.

Example:

It might work, it might not. Some people say they do but if AMD say use an active one, that's what I'd do.

If it helps any, I have the same card and use a Mini-DP to HDMI adaptor with sound supported. It's 12.95 GBP on amazon, I don't know how much they'd cost in the US, but presumably they'd be cheaper. It works amazingly well, so it's not just a cheap solution. By the way - pretty sure it's not a display port, but a mini display port. Check before you buy.
