sorry if this is the wrong subsection I really didn't know what to post it under.
So yeah sorry if there is already a ton of threads about this, but I just wanted to get a confident answer about my specific question.

So to start off, I have 3 monitors:

1 23.6" 1080p monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
2 18.5" 1366x758 monitors:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dell+-+18.5%22+Widescreen+F...

I am using an ati 5770: 2 dvis 1 hdmi and 1 displayport

i want to hook up my 24" monitor through hdmi, one of the dell monitors through a dvi to vga adaptor and the other dell monitor through displayport to vga active adaptor

Adaptor: http://www.amazon.com/Accell-UltraAV-B101B-003B-Display...

I just orderd the adaptor and it will be here in a few days but after reading some forums I am concerned if this will work. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this and could give some insight.

Also I am worried about problems such as flickering/resoulution issues and poor quality through the dp to vga.

If anyone has done this and knows that this will work, without issues such as those that would be great to here. Thanks to anyone who replies, if not well i'm on my own =p.
sorry if i left out some information, I think thats all that is relavent.

I've been using a very similar setup for almost a year now with zero problems. On RARE occasions (maybe once a month or so) when I start up a game in fullscreen, the monitor hooked up to the adapter will go black and display a "resolution not supported" message, but it works fine after turning the monitor off and on.

As far as flickering/ resolution issues go, I haven't had any.
