    Hi,
    I have a ATI 5770 installed in my Mac Pro and I want to run 3 displays,

    I am looking at buying either the Dell U2312HM or Dell U2410HM which I would have 2 of on my desk. Then I also have my Sony 37" TV which is just 1080p which I would want to run mirrored to my main Dell screen.

    I want to know if I will need the Apple Dual Link to DVI adaptor for the 2 Dell displays. Then I could run the 2 Dells of DVI, and then a DVI to HDMI to my TV.

    Would this work?

    Cheers
    Jake

    IIRC you'll need to use a miniDP to DP to power the 2 Dell saving the DVI for the TV, think there's an issue if you try to use 3 DVIs where you'll also need to invest in 1-2 active DVI adapters at $100 each. Search for DVI and 5870, three monitors lots of web hits when these cards were first released by Apple.
