Hi
Over the past couple of weeks I've been building a whole new machine the specs are

Asus P6T Deluxe V2 M/B
Intel i7 930 running @ 2.8ghz with a Corsair H50 water cooler (will oc later)
Corsair Dominator GT 1866 DDR3 triple kit with cooling fan (6 gig kit)
Corsair R120 SSD (112 gb storage & main drive)
Western Digital Black 1TB ( second drive)
2x Asus EAH5870 graphics cards
2X LG dvd drives
Corsair Obsidion 800D Case
Corsair TX850 power supply
3X Samsung Syncmaster 2494HS (but only running 2 ATM)

What my problem here is that to enable Eyefinity on all 3 monitors I have to use the displayport but thses monitors do not have this option (VGA,DVI,HDMI).
I'm running with DVI on the 2 current monitors and if i use HDMI on one of them the screen is not the same theres a border line and not as sharp.
Is there a adpator that can change from displayport to DVI I have looked up adaptors but im not sure what I'm really looking for.

any ideas and help?

You need an active displayport to DVI adaptor such as this http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=11408.

A passive adapter (i.e.. the cheap ones) will not work.
