Mac Pro 3,1 + Three 30" Monitors?
I've got an early 2008 Mac Pro that I'd like to drive three 30" monitors with. I'm not concerned with gaming performance and want three full-resolution screens (no mirroring).
The monitors' interfaces: (1) DL-DVI and (2) DL-DVI / DisplayPort. The Mac Pro already has an AMD Radeon HD 6870 2GB installed and driving a single 30" monitor.
So my question - does anyone know of a way to get the old MP to drive these monitors or is it time for me to put the old box out to pasture after five good years of service?

I haven't seen any posts where someone has explicitly listed success with three full-resolution 2560x1600 30" monitors. Is there a list of multi-head video cards that are known to work in the Mac Pro 3,1 somewhere?
I've Googled this up & down and somehow have managed to miss the answer somehow if it's out there. I'd really like to find a known / confirmed solution before I start down the path of actually upgrading things.

Yes, you can drive 3x30 with the 2008. I did it for years, first with multiple 2600 cards and later with a single 5770 and two active dvi adapters. Performance will be fine for 2d work.
I even ran four 30" and two 20"s with a pair of 5770s for a while.
