Does anyone know why certain AMD graphics cards are stated as "not supported"? I have the HD5770, and I see folks have them working with these monitors. I will be running dual monitors. I don't think I've seen anybody state they have got dual 1440p monitors with the HD5770. The card has (2) dual DVI ports, so that shouldn't be an issue.
Is the compatibility issue just being able to see the BIOS screen? Or is that issue common to all/most AMD cards?
I am not a gamer, but I will probably put a few games on the machine. I don't want to dump a ton of money into a graphics card meant for gaming, when I don't need that type of card.
So, incase I am unable to get my HD5770 to work with dual 1440p monitors, what is a reasonable powered/priced GPU that you would recommend?
I don't want to derail this thread, so you can send me a PM if you have a suggestion that would fit my needs.
But any info pertaining to the HD5770 or any of the other "not supported" GPUs would be good for others in my situation to see.
Thanks!

If no one has answered this I can confirm that 2 Catleaps will run on a 5770 provided they are both hooked up to the dual link DVI posts. I haven't tried Eyefinity with them though. The PC is a secondary PC I am only using to "break-in" these monitors and look for defects.

Thanks! I will eventually upgrade my HD5770, but waiting for the right deal to come along. So, as long as I can get by with this card for awhile is what I wanted to make sure of.

Try making your own if you can! biggrin.gif
Hopefully this helps and

The largest triple monitor stand I could find cost $300 USD and had a 21" max size. Link for Reference.

I found a dual monitor stand that supports screens up to 30" and costs $180. Link for Reference.

PS: I don't endorse any of the linked items or NewEgg.


Also here is a tip for those with mid-range cards and concerned about performance: You only need Anti-Aliasing if you're playing on lower resolution screens as it forces the GPU to render your games at higher resolution to reduce jagged lines and whatnot. You have a 2560x1440 resolution monitor... turn your AA off and let your frame rates SOAR! This is especially relevant to ATI cards as their AA performance has lagged behind nVidia's for as long as I can remember.

Awesome, I am going to buy one then for $40 because my 670 is being RMA'd...

Or should I get the gtx 260 for $50.

Is the $10 worth it even if I am only using it for 2 weeks or so.

It depends on what games you want to play in those two weeks!
