Hi,
I've got a GTX 970 coming in the mail soon and I need some advice on connecting all three of my monitors.

Each monitor has DVI HDMI VGA.

I currently have an ASUS HD 7770 and I'm running a DVI-I to VGA adapter, then into monitor 1.
Then I have a HDMI in display 2.
Then I have display port to HDMI passive into the third monitor.

However, after some digging around, that combination won't work with AMD's graphic engine, because if two monitors are connected via legacy outputs then the third must be native display port. I'm having to use 2 displays now because of that.

So, will using my current connectors work with the GTX 970 or will I have to buy some different cables/adapters?
