Hello there, I been spend the last 3 days try to find out how to connect my 3rd monitor to my HD 5450 and unsuccesfull due to the fact my G'card does not have a Display port, I got 1x VGA, 1x HDMI and 1x DVI. Is anybody please could help me and tell me if there is a way for this matter or any adaptors may I have to buy? Thanks

Regards....

No. There is no way around displayport. ALTHOUGH you could get a second hd5450 which should be relatively cheap. Eyefinity with such setup is impossible though, but I imagine this setup isn't for gaming anyway.

Since you aren't a gamer it'd be more cost effective to just get a second 5450 as zipsi recommended, as they can be found for under $20, actually the PowerColor 5450 on Newegg is only $9.99 after rebate.
