6970 to have Three VGA only monitor eyefinity setup?

The 6970 I'm getting has 2 DVI ports, and 1 Display port and 1 HDMI port. I would like to know if i could get 2x DVI to VGA adapters, and 1x Display port OR HDMI to VGA adapter, and run an eyefinity setup with three cheap widescreen VGA only monitors.

  1. Yes, I think you can. Take a look at the AMD Eyefinity setup tool.
  2. Yes, you can use 2xDVI/VGA adapters but the third adapter must be an active DP/VGA adapter, NOT passive. For eyefinity, the third monitor must be connected via the display port.
  3. Thanks guys.

    The details list it as powered via display port, so it should be okay. A list of AMD validated adapters can be found here >> http://support.amd.com/us/eyefinity/Pages/eyefinity-dongles.aspx

    As I said before, make sure the adapter you choose is 'active' NOT 'passive'
