When using a multi-monitor Eyefinity setup, such as the popular 3-way setup, why is it mandatory to connect one monitor into the display port? For example, if a card had 3 DVI slots and one display port, why aren't you able to do a 3 way monitor setup by just connecting the 3 monitors into the 3 DVI ports on the video card?

its pointless if you ask me, and creates more hassle than anything else.
