(Solved) Help with Mac OS X multi monitors?

I Just bought a Radeon HD 7770 because I acquired 3 of the same monitor and wanted to set up eyefinity for gaming in windows (which is pretty awesome so far). The crappy part is that I use OS X for most things other then gaming and the only way I can get into OS X is to unplug one of the monitors. I have to use one of the 7000 series tricks to get os x to get past the white screen. I can get the two monitors to work fine, but when I plug the third in, OS X shows it but it freezes up and I cant do anything.
Has anyone else done a setup like this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

Edit: the best I could get was the three monitors working but one was black and caused the system to freeze up randomly. I Returned it and bought a GTX 650 Ti and it worked out of the box and still plays games in Nvidia Surround in windows just as good as Eyefinity did. I knew I should have sticked to Nvidia haha.

If anyone is interested in doing Eyefinity for gaming in Windows, Buy a decent Nvidia card, I bought the GTX 650 Ti because the HD 7770 was too much of a headache, I with I just bought the Nvidia to begin with. I was sceptical on Nvidia surround because ATI has been doing it way longer, however the 650 Ti rocks at it , and it boots into Mac OS X 10.8.3 with triple screen with GraphicsEnabler=No out of the box with no issues. All three screens just work.
