Il check it out.

Also is it true that between DVI and HDMI there is no difference in video? Only difference is HDMI can carry sound. If thats so, I can just connect my Primary PC monitor via DVI and get a 25ft HDMI cable from newegg for $20

Whoah, not so fast.

How are you even running three monitors on the card without one being displayport? This is not supposed o be possible. DVI and HDMI use a special clock to refresh, which the card can only produce two of. The displayport was just a workaround for this, as it does not use the clock.

Unless you use an active displayport to dvi/hdmi adapter. You will not be able to run all three monitors. One will always be disabled.

Or is that what you are trying to do?

I googled "3.5 to RCA cord/adapter" and cant seem to find the one.. how would i connect it to my vidcard? a bit lost.. post a pic of it plz

Here is the cable that I currently use from TV to PC (HDMi to DVI) about 20 feet of it lol

They sell them at the dollar store, go to the local one and ask for it, they should have it.
