27" Korean IPS monitor vs Radeon 5850

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, I've been looking for hours now and couldn't find the info I wanted.
What i wanna know is what happens if I buy a korean IPS monitor (i.e. catleap, achieva, etc...) and plug it to my 5850 ?!?
Does it not work at all ?!? or is there only a slight glitch ?!? I would love to pull the trigger on one of these monitors but I don't wanna change my vid card.
Thanks for the help

what brand and model# of your 5850? Different brands have different ports...

I have an XFX, model # is HD-585X-ZAFC
Seems to be DVI-I dual

You may need a DVI-I to DVI-D (dual link) adapter like this one here.

DVI-I still allows for analog signal to be sent on the lines. DVI-D does not, and perhaps this is causing your monitor to throw fits.

I want to buy those 27" IPS monitor but I'm confused because on most korean post over ebay indicated that 5850 is not supported.

The 5850 will work, however, you will not be able to access the BIOS, and gaming on 1440p with 1GB of vRAM has it's issues. I have been using my 27" Shimian with crossfired 5850s.... I like the power, but I just ordered a 7950 to alleviate microstuttering and vRam issues.

Good to hear that! Well, I can access bios via my old screen. What's the issue on 1GB of vRAM?
