Radeon Multiple monitor question

Just a quick noobish question about running 3 monitors using a Radeon/amd card since i've generally used Nvidia cards in the past but have decided to grab a Sapphire 7970

With the display port that the radeon cards use, is that pretty much the same as hdmi/dvi ? I'll just be plugging 1 monitor into the Display Port, 1 into the HDMI and 1 into the DVI ?
Does it matter which monitor is plugged into which? ei. if I play most games using the center monitor am I getting any benifit from using the hdmi/dvi or display port on that monitor ( I don't use the sound from hdmi )

thanks for any info :)

Nope, don't think it matters. Just keep in mind most 2560x1600 monitors only use DP or DVI.

I'm running 3 Asus 27" led LCD so no issues there all 1920 x 1080 and they have all 3 ports built in :)

Usually people use DVI + 2 DisplayPort or HDMI + 2 DisplayPort, but rarely HDMI + DVI + 1 DisplayPort, since most monitors only support either DVI or HDMI and usually people buy 3 same monitor for using as EyeFinity.

Hope it helps! :)
