HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition monitor configuration?

Hello,

I'm considering this card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It has 6 outputs and provides the adapters needed. I currently have a 5830 with 3 monitors and an HDTV, but the 5830 only supports 3 monitors so if I want to use my TV I have to disable one and then enable the TV.

My question is simple, would I be able to use the following monitor configuration with the 5870 eyefinity 6 edition I'm considering, and I don't mean running this in eyefinity, just as separate monitors.

Config:
1 DVI monitor
1 DVI monitor
1 DisplayPort monitor
1 HDTV via HDMI

So would I be able to use all 4 at once? I've been googling for a while and I can't find any information on the possible monitor configurations.

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

While I can't say or know how you intend to use the set up (I don't have an Eyefinity setup myself), here is the link to the various display configurations:

I'm guessing the 3x1 Plus 1 mixed mode is what you're looking for?

Hey Wolf,

Thanks for the speedy reply!

I can't believe I was unable to find this. The 3x1 Display Group Plus 1 Extended definitely looks closest to what I want and actually matches my setup (3 monitors and TV above them). I wonder though if I have to run the 3 monitors as 1 display (in eyefinity) as it describes and not as 3 separate ones which is what I would prefer. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks for the help thus far!
