Bought the wrong cables is there a adapter for my mistake?

So my recently purchased 6870 GPU has dual mini displayport outputs. I purchased two mini to standard displayport cables. My monitors (2) have DVI, DSUB and HDMI inputs. Is there an adapter to convert the monitor cable end from a male std. displayport to a male HDMI, DSUB or DVI?

Thanks T,
My new build is frozen with a mobo is where it loops on and off and beeps 4 times.....not good. I'll hunt for the adapter but all I've found were males on the Displayport end and I need a female......lol

Will this work ?

My monitors don't even have speakers so I'm thinking they should work.

Does your monitor have a host slot for it if so it should work fine

I'll order them, but they seemed like a real cheap out with all the other mini DP adapters running in the mid to high twenties and higher. Thanks, T

Sometimes it's not about how much it cost

You can find quality in any cable budget or not if you know how to treat it right
