How many displays are you planning on using? For the first two monitors you can use HDMI, DVI, VGA but any more and you'll require a DP monitor or an active DP adapter.

I can give you the link to 2 good display port adaptors
Display port to DVI -http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815158198&Tpk=activedisplayporttodvi

Display Port to VGA - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815310003&cm_re=active_display_port_to_vga-_-15-310-003-_-Product

They work just fine for Eyefinity with 3 monitors
