I need help choosing the cabling to hook up my monitors.

My hardware:

 

I have three of these monitors:

I have two of these graphics cards:

I'd like to be able to hook all the monitors up, and i'm not sure how, and which active display cables i need.

Well, I'm gonna tell you how I did it, because my screens have the same connectors as yours.

One to HDMI, one to DVI, and one using an ACTIVE adapter (from XFX) miniDP-DVI to DVI's third screen input.

In your case, I suggest the same.. Which ACTIVE ADAPTER??. Maybe one of these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815309008 (this one is mDP to DVI)

Actually, it's pretty simple, once you have the right adapter.. Just plug them in and configure..

 

Best regards...
