Then....

 

Old card is a Saphire 5850 with 2 x dvi's, 1 HDMI, and 1 full size display port.

I have a three monitor setup.  They are all DVI monitors.  I had all three connected to the Saphire card by using the 2 DVIs and an ACTIVE DP to DVI adapter (Wieson).    It worked fine.  The only notable odd behavior with that setup was that the monitor on the Active DP dongle was not viewable until windows started.   Fine for me as I didn't need to see my BIOS post on all 3 monitors.

 

Now.....

I picked up an MSI 6950 Frozr II 2 GB GDDR5 card for cheap from a friend.

It has 2 DVI and 2 mini-DP and 1 HDMI port.

I understand that it would be ideal to be using DP connected monitors but I dont have the money to go down that road yet so my DVI monitors will have to do.

Will this card support me getting a DVI to HDMI adaptor for the third monitor and not running the ACTIVE DP dongle?     according to this post, I guess the answer is No http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=440&threadid=163326&enterthread=y

Would I be able to use a DP to Mini-DP adaptor and use it with my DP to DVI Active dongle?

I've got a virtual that says everything will work with the active adapter, just as with your old vidcard.
