GTX 780ti - which ports to use for dual monitors?

I just picked up 2 identical Asus VG248 monitors.

My graphics card has:
2x DVI outputs
1x HDMI output
1x Display Port output

Both monitors will be running at max resolution (1920x1080). and although I plan to use both monitors for gaming, I don't need a single widescreen that stretches across both panels. Mostly, I'll be 2+ boxing in MMOs.

I have cables for all, the monitors can take any of the 3 port styles, but if I run 2 without using a hub, should I use the two DVI ports? Or should I try instead the HDMI and Display ports? (I would daisy chain the Display ports but the monitor doesn't support it).

Thanks for any assistance.

Hi,
I would image using both dvi ports on the card would be best,
Gaming on dual monitors will be interesting I've been told the crosshairs will be between both monitors :/

Thanks! It should be ok...my plan is just to have 2 independent screens with a character on both. This way, I won't have to alt+tab every time I want to switch views.

Hi,
Good monitors by the way I have 1 as well :)
Not sure how all that works I'm on 1 monitor now but I only have 1 dvi I would have to use a small display port to use 2 monitors that or the hdmi and I don't like using it it changes the resolution to much.
