Default Eyefinity Help

I just recently purchased this card:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127490

and I want to extend my desktop across 3 monitors. this card has HDMI, DVI and something called a "displayport" input. So what cable/adapter do I need to buy to get 3 monitors running on this card?


Thanks!

what i ment is that its not branded as an eyefinity card
and with just a sigle card you are only restricted to 3 screens
as where if it was an eyefinity labeled card you would have 6 30" screens max

a display port to what ever your monitor has available
ie DP to DVI
DP to HDMI
DP to VGA
i really dont know whats available
just take a gander and the connection and then do a google search
you might have to get a Display port to HDMI adapter then a HDMI to DVI
something like that
