I already ordered it, but sadly i doubt it will work because i haven't seen anyone mention it in this thread....must be a reason. Is it because it doesn't have a dual (mini displayport AND USB connection?) This confused me because it does specify in the description that it is for dual-link dvi.
Any enlightenment on if this will work, or what cable is recommended will be much appreciated. I've also read about the one from monoprice.....everything is about 10x the price than this though, so I thought it was worth a shot biggrin.gif
Thanks!

Nope, won't work. The real DL-DVI adapter have a USB cable too to provide extra power to the converter box. You must get one that has the USB cable as well. The cheapest you can find one is for 50 dollars.

Ah i see. Do you by any chance have a link/reference to a reliable seller for such a cable?

Thanks, I really do appreciate it.

It was a question, not a statement. Read the post above mine, he claims he needs third GTX 680 to hit 60 FPS in Skyrim, that's why I said it's crazy. But it doesn't make sense.

Maybe he has other hardware bottlenecking? I would think ONE 680 would probably be enough.

Should I buy one of these? Are they high quality and definitely worth the price?

Personally I think the crossover is the most well built... And it's worth the price if you want 1440p thumb.gif

Here's a review of the Shimian.. It's the one I chose (because it was the cheapest). I didn't like the way the catleap's looked and everyone said they lean to the right.

I found the CrossOver. Very nice eBay pricing too. Which one is the best overall? I want to get into 1440p gaming and plan on getting a second 7970 for it (I am a 55 to 60 FPS all the time guy. T'is an unfortunate curse, but I can't help it).
post #5408 of 11286
Sorry if this already asked but it will takes forever to go through each posts.

Could someone measure up the height of the stand? From the table to the bottom edge of the monitor while in 90'C straight. I just wanted to know if I need to slip a few books under the stand if it is not as tall as my Apple Cinema Display.

Thanks!

They're all the exact same. Just comes down to the look of the outside and the price.
