hey guys,
i was looking into these monitors but i noticed something: my graphics card setup-hd 6850 (crossfired) is not on the list of supported/non supported graphics cards. the 6870 is though and they have the exact same ports. will this work? or is it something other than the ports that make them not work with certain monitors?

As long as it's a DVI-DL port and your card's specs state 2560x1440 or higher as a max resolution, you're fine.

Hi,
I'm thinking of ordering one of these screens (not sure yet which of the off brands), and all the seller websites say that it can't be used with laptops or onboard graphics?
are they just exaggerating to be on the safe side?
I have an intel HD 3000 with a display port connection on my Lenovo X220T, which should be able to output the resolution needed (though having to pay around 70$ for an adapter to dual link dvi is going to really suck).
anyone know if the screens would work with the laptop?

I just bought the Achieva Shimian 27" QH270-Lite from ta_planet for $329.

Did anyone of you pay with PayPal, but not with a Credit Card? So just regular bank transfer?

It says that it can take a couple of days. How did that went for you?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Unless you paid with an e-check.. it should be an instant payment (if you paid "cash" with your checking/savings bank account)

The money has been taken from my bank account, but it goes first to PayPal. In there it says it can take 4-6 days to be processed. So it will be at least 5-6 days until my seller (red-cap) receives the payment I guess.

I dont like PayPal anymore smile.gif
And I'm pretty sure red-cap will wait for the money to be on his account until he starts shipping.

1 more bonus question -> The monitor I bought has no scaler or anything, so the scaling will be done by the GPU (hd 6870). Does that scaling cause a performance drop in games because the GPU has to work harder? Or does it not take much effort for the GPU to do it? smile.gif

My crossover has been shipped by red-cap biggrin.gif Still in Korea according to EMS track and trace... but we will see smile.gif
