I tried it on the wrong port on my roommates 6950. I'll try again but he's in the middle of a LoL match. Friend bringing macbook over later, that should work if the dvi cable is working, right?

You're going to need an active display port to dual-link adapter.

Why can't I use my dvi ports? I'm not about to buy a 100 dollar cable unless I know it will work.

Which model Macbook are you using? If you're using an older one that has Mini-DVI then it should be OK. The newer Macbooks with displayport will need this adapter.

Can anyone confirm higher refresh rates on a Catleap without speakers?

Think this card will be able to drive these monitors? I'm thinking so, the ports look like DVI-I DL. Specs say max res is 2560x1600.

8800 GTS 320mb

Not going to be gaming with it, just using hackintosh, photoshop, video/photo editing and the like.

I just got shimian non tempered 27inch monitor, but it wont give me a screen when i boot up, so i started it with my old monitor, and tried adding the monitor in windows and it cant do it, like it wont work. I went to control panel and everytime i manually switch it it gives me blue screen
