So i just picked up some aoc 23 inch ips panels for eyefinity, the r9 270x has two dvi ports, hdmi port, and a dosplay port. Problem is: my monitors only have dvi and vga ports, can i use a hdmi to dvi cable for the third monitor?

Of course you can. Do your monitors support HD? Also what type of DVI ports are there on the monitors?

No, the special active converter is to change a digital signal into an analog signal if you require a VGA connection to a monitor.

In your case all monitors accept digital input (DVI) so you do not need an active converter.

I don't know if your card will be able to run four monitors.

Well I found a video where a single HD 7870 runs four monitors in Eyefinity 4

Technically the R9 270X is the same card and has the same output options so it should run your four monitors.

I'm thinking about running a similar setup, can i ask why youre having to use dvi-hdmi-dvi instead of just dvi-dvi?
