Its working? I do a lot of reading about this thing..some of them say, eyefinity cant work on 3 vga monitor, its must have 1 or 2 monitor that support digital signal.
That true? I'm little bit confuse here..

AFAIK you cant even hdmi>vga. Only dvi>vga. That would mean you'd need 2 active adapters- 60$ in adapters...

nah, the card has 2 dvi ports so use them, just make sure they are actually DVI-I so they have the analog signal as well, opposed to DVI-D which is purely digital..

I already put 2 dvi-i -> vga adapter but only one monitor work, from what I read, second dvi port at GC (bottom one) is purely digital..cant convert into a analog signal.

as i understand it- hdmi is pure digital. you cant go passivly to vga from it.

so if your card has dvi, hdmi and dp- you can dvi>vga pasivly only.

you'd need
hdmi>vga active adapter, and
dp>vga active adapter
