Trying to set up an Eyefinity configuration with three monitors. The trouble I'm having is that I have these three outputs on my computer: HDMI, VGA, and DisplayPort. On the back of my three monitors there are two HDMI and one VGA each.

There doesn't exist a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter, so what I attempted to do was buy http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815129011



After connecting those two items and attempting to plug the DisplayPort into my computer and the HDMI into the monitor, Catalyst Control Center and Windows failed to recognize the monitor. So what exactly is the issue? Wrong adapters? Faulty adapters? Impossible to do with this setup? Any ideas? A passive adapter works, so I know that the DisplayPort on my video card isn't faulty.

Are you sure your card supports Eyefinity?

Why didn't you just buy an HDMi splitter? I'm sure you can find some somewhere

Because that wouldn't work. It wouldn't just make the same image on both screens, and even if it did work, Eyefinity wouldn't never support it.

I'm not 100% positive but supposedly you can't use Three monitors on one card unless it doesn't have a VGA port and instead has an HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort or something along those lines.

Eyefinity does allow this. Mine has six outputs, and I have six monitors running on it right now.
