2x Korean Monitor with Ati HD7970

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The Ati 7970 has 1 Dual Link DVI port, one HDMI and one DisplayPort. It also has one single link DVI. (Specs here: http://goo.gl/k5swQ )

Can I connect two 27" Koeran monitors to this card or do I need another card such as the GTX 680 which has 2x dual link dvi ports?

What res are those screens? Anything over 1080p must get connected to a dual link. It seems weird why powercolor gave two hdmi- single link adapter. You will need to buy an hdmi-dual-link adapter.

If you're located close enough to a micro-center you could pick up the same Korean monitor re-branded. It's 400$ but it supports DVI + Displayport so you could use your card without buying adapters. http://www.microcenter.com/product/384780/EQ276W_27_IPS_LED_Monitor

If you already have the monitors just buy an adapter like noobhell mention - the displayport to DVI adapters are much more expensive than the hdmi ones.

Can I use the DP->DVI adapter that came with my card? Looks like it has 24+1 pins which is dual link right?

I know but often they just put in all pins so you can use them with dual-link cables but the pins used only by dual-link just don't have any signal running through them.

If you got a 7xxx series card, you would have to get an active DP to DVI adapter in order for the second monitor to work.

Or you can go nvidia and have two dual link dvi ports built in to the card.
