I've got a Radeon 6850, and recently just ordered 3x ST2220L monitors.
Apparently I need an active (dual or single?) link DisplayPort adapter. I'm kind of confused though, and could use some help with figuring out which one, as there seems to be a lot. There's also the issue of male/female?
Any help would be appreciated if someone can point me in the right direction.
an active display adapter turns a mini display port into a dvi port. you then use the dvi cord to connect it to your 3rd monitor. If you want to avoid this change, you would need a monitor that has innate mini display port connection on it, but those tend to cost more.
