The main question I have is since these require dual link DVI how would you go about running them off of one card? Most of the AMD cards I've seen only have one dual link dvi. I'm not sure about Nvidia cards though. Thanks!
I will have my second in house in about 2 hours and will let you know! To all the AMD peeps with issues getting the monitor to OC - sorry I cannot help since I am running all nVidia. I have had zero problems going to 97hz on a GTS 250 card (the lowest-end nVidia card I have on hand).

I then sent him/her an email asking why they bothered with the Best Offer option, since they were not even willing to sell at about a 2% discount. I did not receive a reply.
Based on that, I chose not to order from Red-Cap. Instead, I placed my order last night (Sunday) with dcsamsungmall at 6:30 pm CDT, which would have been around 8:30 am Monday morning in Korea. I received a Fedex tracking number 3.5-hours later at 10:00 pm CDT. I then received an eBay shipping notice Monday morning at 2:30 am (8-hours after ordering) indicating that my item had shipped. I checked the tracking this morning (Monday at 6:30 am) and the package had been picked up and on its way to Incheon Airport by 2:30 PM (Korea time on Monday), approximately 6-hours after ordering. That's what I call speedy shipping!
I am not sure why so many buyers are enthralled with dreamseller. He/she has a 98.5% FB rating, which is low enough that I would stay away even if they were a US seller. They appear to be overwhelmed at the moment with too many orders to keep track of and, therefore, slow shipping. Dcsamsungmall has a 99.7% FB rating and his shipping efficiency, at least in my case, was unparalleled.
For me dreamseller has come through with flying colors both times. I don't care what his overall rating is since with me it's 100%. That doesn't mean he is going to be great every time (who is?), but that's been mine and other's experience with him. Take our recommendations with a grain of salt and go with what your gut says. That's the reason for this club, form, and spreadsheet - to get as much info collected so others can make informed decisions regarding who to use and what to purchase.

Unless there's something about the catleap stand that doesn't allow you to do that, I can't see why people are going to the lengths of buying a whole new stand for it. I am extremely anal about having the monitor perfectly level with eye height, so this is really important for me to know as I am about to place an order with green-sum.
The lean for me was not due to the connection between the stand arm and the base - it was due to how the stand is designed. It really isn't designed to handle a monitor this wide (it is very heavy - just wide of course) so it will tilt and wobble. I have yet to read about a Catleap that does not have a the tilt and/or wobble issue. It isn't really a negative for me since I changed the mount out immediately. Just be aware that you may find that an extra $30-$50 for a better stand might be required for you to be happy with your monitor (still hundreds less than an equivalent purchased in the US.)

Personally I think I'll by a vesa mount / arm so I can get the monitor a bit lower. Just need to find one suitable.
I'll fill in the form once I check out my monitor.
That is only if your stand arm and base are not contacting each other flush. Someone noted that was an issue with theirs. However, that will not solve the overall problem. Take a look at the stand removal and you will see the mounting point is simply too low for the width of the monitor and the size of the stand mount is too small.
