Hello and good day,

I want to get an eyefinity setup working with a 7970. I am planning on using 3 tvs That ONLY have HDMI support. I already have one tv. Planning on getting 2 of the same model. I have been reading on active display port adaptors to hdmi conversion. My question is what do I need. Resolution I intend to run are 5000 x 1080 p. If this is possible at all. I amnew to eyefinity and this will be my first setup. 

This is how I have the picture in my mind

HDMI ------- > HDMI ON CARD

HDMI--------> HDMI ADAPTOR DISPLAY PORT ADAPTOR

first one can stay in the hdmi port, second one may use dvi-hdmi or passive dp-hdmi adapter, third one MUST use active dp-hdmi adapter.
