Active or Passive DVI to Displayport

Hello

I just bought my final piece for my build, the i7 3770K. With it, obviously, comes the Intel HD 4000 graphics. I bought 3 ASUS VS 248H-Ps for use in my build and would like to use two of them with the iGPU (until I get my hands on a EVGA GTX 680 FTW ;P). My motherboard has two video inputs, HDMI and Displayport. I can easily plug in one by using a HDMI cable, but if I want to plug in my second monitor can I just use a passive DVI to Displayport adapter or do I have to use a passive one?
