My real question was will i be fine with getting an amd gpu? In your case the answer is yes...but did you have to do anything extra to make it work?
on the manufactures website they only list so many gpus that are not compatible and a majority of them are from amd.
The term "scorpion effect"
was just a way of describing the performance outcome when using all amd... quoted on the video
Thanks but i need more support on thisEdit: i just realized that my mobo allows me to do both 2 way SLI and 2 way CrossFireX but the pci slots are 2.0x16 and i cant find any good ati gpu's with that interface worth buying...kinda pointless now
I just plugged the monitor into a DL-DVI (dual link) port on my HD7970, using a DL-DVI (dual link) cable that I was using from my previous 24" 120Hz monitor.
There is a DL-DVI cable supplied with the monitor, I am not sure of its quality, as I didn't use it.
GPU's with PCI-e 3 x16 slots are backwards compatible, so they will work fine in a PCI-e 2 x16 slot.
Not all AMD cards have a DL-DVI port (MSI Lighting HD7970 for one I know , cool move AMD), dont know for Nvidia, but have seen people saying they have used this monitor with cards as far back as the GTS 250 .
