I think it would be easiest to use the config given by AMD themselves

An you already seem to have all the adapters that are required.
The Male-Female thing gets very confusing, I would advise you to stick to the standard terminology and decipher the Male-Female connectors yourself, since the cards (GPUs) always have a standard output port.

The Active display ports/adapters are best bought from the card manufacturer, since they are the only ones that can guarantee their working, most display ports out there will always have the small text written on them, that they have found that these DP's have had problems with ATI cards.
