I saw this one for 93.37: XFX HD 5750 512MB. It has dual DVI and one HDMI outputs.

From what I can gather, it may be a replacement for DVI. Apple uses that connection, and it seems that some of the newer monitors will have that connection.

Basically its a port similar to DVI that allows one video card to have a third video out using it. It uses a different frame rate or something, I can't remember what makes it different tbh. Basically, without it, there is no way to run 3 monitors on one card (at least no way that has been implemented in a consumer card).
