quick question on these pesky mini displayport adapters. My new PC build has a Radeon 7970 MSI Lightning video card. It has 4 mini displayports and 2 DVI ports. I want to hook up multiple monitors but my current monitor array has limited ports. I need to connect 2 via mini-dp ports to HDMI ports.
So, where I need mini-dp to HDMI adapters, I'm curious if these need to be 'active' in the same way that mini-dp to DVI adapters do? If so, can someone recommend a product that's reliable?
If they don't need to be active, will any old mini-dp to HDMI adapter work?
