I have a Radeon HD6950 and I've currently running:

Main Monitor. (connects via either displayport/dvi-2(dual-link)).

2nd Monitor (DVI-VGA).

I wish to add a 3rd monitor.

It is my understanding that the other DVI PORT on the card is Dual-Link DVI-2 and it is
impossible to send a signal through it to a standard VGA monitor.

So without upgrading monitors I need adaptors.

Am I correct that the following setup should work?

Monitor 1: DVI-2 (Dual-Link).
Monitor 2: DVI adaptor->VGA cable.
Monitor 3: Displayport->VGA adaptor

I should have noted that both additional monitors have VGA connections only.
