Default multi-monitor setup help

First off happy turkey day!

I just bought myself 2 new monitors online:
ASUS VS248H-P Black 24" HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor - Newegg.com

I'm hoping to hook them up to my current displays:
SAMSUNG EX2220X Glossy Black 21.5" 5ms LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 DC 1,000,000:1(1000:1) - Newegg.com

I have the XFX Radeon HD 6950 graphics card:
XFX HD-695X-CNDC Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity - Newegg.com

I have DVI cables and an HDMI cable (no mini DisplayPort adapters).

What is the most cost efficient way to make all 4 monitors work together? I play video games but don't want the games spread across multiple monitors or anything. Thanks in advance for the help.

Default Re: multi-monitor setup help

I'd probably do a 2x2 with the two 21.5" monitors up top. Amazon offers TONS of cheap (and good quality too) monitor stands.

Amazon.com: quad monitor stand

EDIT: I sort of misunderstood.. You can buy passive DisplayPort adapters for cheap. You're going to need at least one to do the quad monitor set up.
