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
The GPU always scales, regardless of the existence of a scalar in the monitor, I believe. So it doesn't make any difference for the GPU. The only issue is that devices that do not have scalars (non-computers, therefore) will not work unless their default resolution matches with the monitor.

As for paypal, I paid with my (dutch) creditcard and it took red-cap 1 day to get the money (after my payment) and then it took him another 2 days to ship the monitor... so it can go pretty fast. I guess that paying it with your bank account instead would add 1-2 days, but it shouldn't add more than that. smile.gif

Thank you.

I paid for my crossover using that method. For most of my ebay transactions, I do a PayPal payment with the funds being taken from my bank. This is instant whenever I do it. Initially, I used to do a paypal transfer using a credit card and that took days for the seller to receive my payment. I thought the seller was going to be pissed because that took like 3-5 days. I haven't done that type of payment before, but if anyone else can chime in, that would be good!

You probably added a credit card to your PayPal and that's why your bank transfers are instant. Mine is even called 'delayed bank transfer'... When it says 'Want instant payment?' it asks me to add a credit card.

Anyway, didnt expect it but I hope the seller is okay with it.

IIRC, you have to have a CC on your PayPal account to have an instant bank transfer as it requires a backup funding source.

What type of plug is used on all these monitors/who makes it? Seems like a very uncommon type, is there much use of them besides that mysterious Effinet monitor?
post #3256 of 4784
yep that is it

Would like to know how many folks are buying the square trade. Think it would make a good poll. Considering where the prices started and where they are now -it's tempting to add the three years and the U.S. compatible power brick. Would appreciate advise about this.

Also have currently an HD5850 so anyone using the non-compatible video cards - please comment on what to expect. (I did use the search feature in the thread) I have an old 8800gts lying around. Will see if that can push it if the HD5850 can't.

Finally got my catleap today. Its amazing to say the least coming from a 1080p NT panel monitor. I got lucky too with no dead pixels.

Eoniverse, I'm using a XFX non-red 5850 with mine and i've had no problems at all. People were saying that you couldn't see BIOS or anything before POST, but when I booted my computer I saw everything just fine on the monitor and had absolutely no trouble at all. Just remember to plug it in to the DVI port closest to the board. So even if you have problems, I'm guessing the worst it could be is that you can't access bios with the monitor and would have to use a different one or switch cards to mess around in it. It should work regardless though when windows starts up.

Thank you for the fast reply!! Are you using the stock power brick ? Would you share who you purchased from off ebay?
post #3260 of 4784
eoniverse, I don't know why the manufacturer has noted the opposite, but the 5850 should be more than compatible with that screen. The card has a fully functional Dual DVI output, and can handle the resolution easily too. As bavman pointed out, just make sure you use the correct port.
