Triple monitor configuration on AMD Radeon HD 5770 Vapor-X?

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, Intel Core i3 @ 3.10GHz | 8GB DDR3 1333MHz
Greetings,

Fairly simple and quick question- I'm planning on setting up a triple monitor configuration with my two main monitors and my LED HDTV connected to my Radeon HD 5770 Vapor-X, however, I just want to ensure that it is possible. I know that a powered DisplayPort adapter is required to use triple monitors utilizing the two DVI ports along with the DisplayPort, however, do I need to do anything special to use triple monitors between the DVI ports and the HDMI port?

My current configuration is as follows;

Main monitor: VGA monitor through a DVI-VGA adapter @ 1600x900
Secondary monitor: DVI-native monitor @ 1280x1024

Both the DisplayPort and HDMI port are disconnected as of now, but I would like to connect my Samsung LED TV to the HDMI port to use as a third monitor and occasionally as my main monitor for gaming with my wireless controller.

Is there any chance that this is possible with my particular graphics card?

Thanks in advance,

Comguy

Hm. Taking those links into account, along with the information I found earlier describing the requirement of an active DisplayPort adapter for more than two monitors on Radeon HD 5xxx series cards, would it be best to find an active DisplayPort-HDMI adapter and connect my television to the card through that? I would try to connect the television right now, but it is too far away to connect at the same time as my main monitors at the moment. (I'm waiting on a 25' HDMI cable from eBay.)

Alternatively, I could connect one of my main monitors to the DisplayPort using an active DisplayPort-DVI adapter, and connect the HDTV to the HDMI port, according to the first AMD link you shared.

Which do you think would be best?
