dual dvi 7950?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i have two monitors that have DVI only inputs and it seems the 7950's only come with one DVI port.
is there an adapter or something i could get? or even a dual dvi 7950?

whats the difference between

and
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202007

they're the same price and the only difference i can tell apart from them is one has slightly higher clocks than the other.

EDIT: oh, one has the vapor x cooler and one is the flex cooler. which should i get?

If you want Dual link dvi - the active adapter is quite pricey around $90 for the 60hz and $120 for the 120hz (which i dont know if itll work at 1440p)

i just need a 7950 with two dvi ports, im not sure what you mean by having to get an adapter if the card already comes with both ports.

get the sapphire HD 7950 flex OC. The flex technology allows you to use triple monitor without a mini Display port. read more about it here.

also the dual x cooler has better VRM cooling than the vapor-x. go for the flex edition.
