can i plug 2 dvi cables to one card and 1 dvi cable to the other or do they still have to be on the first card only?

It has to be

DVI-DVI-Display Port or DVI-HDMI-Display Port. Unless you have a Sapphire Eyefinity Flex Card otherwise it won't stretch the image across all 3 monitors. It will only recognize 2 at a time.

The price of the HDMI cable doesn't matter. What you need is a High-Speed (1.4 or 1.3) HDMI cable to get the best resolution possible by HDMI. It also has to be supported by the monitor & card.

It needs to be connect by display port.

Look at the images. I have no idea why they did it like that, I guess it's a way to make more money off of people instead of having it support this by default on all cards.

As long as one of the monitors supports Display Port you should be fine. And to be Clear you're saying you're going to connect it like this.

Monitor 1 - DVI
Monitor 2 - Mini-DP adapter to DVI.
Monitor 3 - Mini-DP to Display Port

Just having an adapter come from display port doesn't count. It actually has to be plugged into the display port slot on the monitor.

your adapter should also be an active adapter.
