    DisplayPort, let me get this straight

    OK, so if I have one graphic card with 1x DVI, 1xHDMI and 1X DisplayPort sockets I have 3 seperate monitor connections if I choose to use them?
    That's it really, short and sweet this one.......

    Depends on the brand, ATI with Eyefinity and a display port moniter or active adapter is good to go for three moniters on one card (possibly four - two via the displayport if using displayport moniters) . I think nVidia have finally gotten around to supporting this in some of their very top level cards but it is not common and most are still limited to two active outputs at a time total as far as I am aware.
