post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I need to connect the achieva shimian (2560 * 1440) monitor to a display port on "GIGABYTE ATI Radeon HD6870 1GB DDR5 2DVI/HDMI/2x Mini DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card GV-R687OC-1GD"


Will this work ?

Do you have any other recommendation?

No.

You'll need something like this. Your Dual Link DVI adapter must have a usb connector, or it cannot output the 2560x1440 signal required.

Your recommended product is over $80.

My budget is less than $50

Does it exist ?

Cheapest I could find.

In other words, no.

I found one for about $55. I will pm you the link as it's on eBay. I've bought two of them and they work fine driving 2 (out of 3) 27" 2560x1440 monitors from my 7970. Well technically it's a 7970 xFire, but all three monitors are plugged into the first card.
