I want to connect 3 monitors to my HD7750, without using Eyefinity, because of the different resolutions. But according to Vision Engine Control Center and Windows I have to disable one to enable another. This is my setup:

HD7750 @ DP > DVI > DVI > Samsung T200 (1680x1050)
HD7750 @ DVI > VGA > VGA > L5EX_TA (12" VGA LCD) (1024x768)
HD7750 @ HDMI > HDMI > Philips 32PFL7803D/10 (1920x1080)

Anybody an idea?

The answer to your question is you have to use an active displayport > DVI Adapter. A plain on DP > DVI wont cut it.

Or Mini active DP > DVI.

But why does it has to be Active? The adapter that I now use works, but you say if it's active, Windows will allow me to use 3 Windows? All 3 channels work, but I can only use 2 at the same time, doesn't matter which monitors.

And is a DP to DVI-D/Single Link an active adapter?

It has to be active because thats the way eyefinity works. Useing more then 2 monitors is eyefinity period. According to AMD and require the use of an active displayport adapter or a monitor with a native displayport. Unless you buy a sapphire flex version or "eyefinity" version of a card that supports nativily 3(or more) non displayport monitors at a time.
