    Just make sure you have at least one DisplayPort monitor. I love my eyefinity.

    Anytime I read anything about using an active adapter, I hear nothing but problems. Some work, some don't, one works fine for one person, but not for another, etc and so forth. I didn't want to mess around with them, so I just ended up getting a DP monitor and I haven't had any issues. If you want to read about the adapter nightmares, go over to widescreengamingforums.com and you'll find plenty of angry people. Now I'm not saying it won't work, but you might have to go through a couple different kinds before you find one that works. Don't say I didn't warn you.

    I use this on my 5970 and it works fine. Since I'm too cheap to order a dvi cable I'm using my old adapters, so I'm using mini dp to dvi, then dvi to hdmi, and hdmi to dvi lol.
