I just bought a new video card, a Radeon 7870. Quite excited. Problem is it has 1 DVI, 1 HDMI and 2 Mini DisplayPort ports. I have three monitors. High end IPS panels, 1920X1080 resolution. What is the best way to connect these three monitors to my new graphics card?
For inputs, the monitors have 1 HDMI, 1 regular DisplayPort, 1 DVI and 1 VGA. At the moment I could get two to work, 1 through DVI and 1 through HDMI, though I hate mixing standards like that. My other thought would be to get 1 or 2 Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapters and run all 3 monitors off of DVI to keep things standard.
Other suggestions? Is there an inherent advantage of say a Mini DP to DP adapter vs a Mini DP to DVI?
