Hello, I've recently purchased a 32" HDTV and I've tried to introduce it to my dual monitor setup (both connected by DVI), To my surprise, I have to use the displayport, so i was wondering if i can use this adaptor http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20763 to convert display port to hdmi?

Like anyone really cares what you buy. Its your money do what you want with it. But if you want all 3 displays running you'll need an active displayport. So while that may work, you won't be able to have all 3 turned on.

You'll buy nVidia for better multi-monitor support?  That's rather amusing.  The only two single-GPU cards they sell which support more than two monitors are the 670 and 680, which start around $380.
