I ordered 3 from red-cap, and no joke, everyone is perfect, not even bleeding
Going 3x1 for gaming is nice for sure

Sounds like your GPU can't do dual link DVI on both ports.

Blue flashing light means it's trying to get a signal, but cannot. (I've got the same problem on my XFX 6950, so am upgrading to a 670/680 soon.)

I am using a 6850, and others report it's working fine. I also got one before, and it was being run on the same card (but different physical card), and it worked.

This is strange.

Try taking out the one you're using regardless and stick the new one in the same port and see what happens.

This is on a different computer. It's a 6850, but a different brand. I just looked up on their site, and saw it's only Dual link DVI-I and not dual link DVI-D.

I suppose dvi-i will not work with this monitor?

What if I used a DVI to HDMi adapter.

DVI-I is pretty standard on graphics cards, so it's normal. It allows both digital and analog signal for output devices. If you plug a DVI-D cable into it, it will work just fine, sending digital signal, while if you plug a DVI->VGA adapter and use it with a VGA cable, you can use it for for analog outputs (not for these monitors, of course).

I am looking at 120hz monitor for 599.99 running with a GTX680 with the possibility to Sli next month or sell my GTX680 and spend a bit more on the GTX685 4Gb version . My goals as a gamer are high frames peeking 110 or around 100 or even holding 120 . Don't care about resolution above 1080p since I am use to it and as long as I don't look at a 1400p monitor I should be ok !! Yeah I know probably once I witness higher resolution I would cave in .

Games I play 75% of the time are racers & Fps as for windows programs they are audio related so I only need high quality studio monitors .

This is the monitor I am looking at

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236206


Estimated days will it take for one monitor to arrive the USA ? Also here is a link to another monitor that uses same resolutions 2560x1400p but I can buy it here in the US with better warranty . You would think buying a monitor would be the easy part .

I just recieved my crossover yesterday and IM stunned with picture quality and Perfect Pixel monito from DREAMSELLER fast shippin pivot stand for 350 and yes it does have brightness control but that's it and also i have dual gtx560's and i run crysis 2 in maxed out settings and still get around 70-80 fps on averege and in BF# maxed out around 100fps and the colors are amazing and 144p,just 1 thing with my monitor was when i first got it there was alot of ghosting but than shortly after using the monitor it all went away,now on the second day and absolutely perfect slight bleeding in top left corner but it's nothing so im stunned for wat i got per $ i would deffinetly recommend this model also the casing looks easy to take apart and im a mercedes technician so i no bit about taking things apart and this looks much much much easier than ctleap i don't no about shimian ones might be easier to take apart even than crossover but from reading lots of forums peaple had stated that crossover may have bit better color quality and better stands and overall build quality

So in a nutshell the Q270's come with the LG panels or are there only certain sellers selling those models.
