I have a Gigabyte HD6950, as-well as 2 screens (1440x900), I have used the two DVI slots on the back and two HDMI ports are remaining, if I was to get a third screen and plug it into the HDMI, will it work properly?
Heard heaps of stuff about needing an active display port adapter, do I need to worry about this?

Actually yes you will need to use the displayport.You can use up to 2 monitors without a display port but anything after that will require a display port.

Your probably thinking of a mini-display port.Regular display ports look almost the exact same as a HDMI port so you probably overlooked it.Your card does have a display port.What you will need is a Display port to DVI or HDMI adapter.

Is this your card?

according to specifications - HD6950 can support up to 4 simultaneous displays.

so i dont think you should worry about display ports.

hdmi cables are cheap. go ahead and test it.

display port is for that card is for 6displays.
