Can I use DUAL 27" Korean monitors with GeForce GTX 680 FTW+ ?

post #1 of 8

Hi thanks for reading this! If I feel like I'm getting directly to the point I find that the shorter my posts the more answers I get. I am not trying to be rude and I appreciate your help.


I was looking at the different 27" korean monitor variants and I read on some ebay auction that only DVI-I dual link is supported. I want to have dual 27" korean monitors without using my HDMI port (it is going to TV).

Here is my video card EVGA GeForce GTX 680 FTW+ 4GB
It says:

Interface
PCI-E 3.0 16x
DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI, Display-Port
240Hz Max Refresh Rate
Max Analog : 2048x1536
Max Digital : 2560x1600 (Dual Link DVI Only)


1. I start researching and I find multiple sources saying that DVI-D is the same as DVI-I but it includes an analog signal. Can I simply put the adapter on the back of my video?

2. Then I take a look back at my video card specs and notice it says "Max Digital : 2560x1600 (Dual Link DVI Only)" and I start wondering does that mean it cannot be converted? I can understand Korean retailers giving facts that are not exact but EVGA probably wouldnt. Can I even run dual 27" koreans at 2560 x 1440 with this video card? Since the difference in resolution is only slightly higher on one number I am assuming this is a 16:9 monitor and the card supports up to 16:10. I'm wondering if the same rules still apply.


If it cannot support 2 monitors at 2560 x 1440 should I be overly concerned? I don't know if I would actually use that resolution or not.

Thank you!!!

You can use displayport and dual-link dvi for monitors with a resolution above 1920x1200.

You don't need an adaptor, you can use both dvi connections, they are both dual link, I did it when I had my 680s

Is that because the back of the video card is female? I can just use a DVI-D dual link cable and no adapter is needed?





Thanks guys. What about being able to run both monitors at max resolution from just 1 video card?

If I chose to use the display port I read some issue with dual link and I would need this adapter? http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?afepn=5335869999&campid=5335869999&PID=1225267&ViewItem=&item=290720649525

Yeah. But don't. Those adapters are finicky and should be a last resort only. You can run 2x 1440p off of native dual link DVI ports, so do it.

Your HDMI *might* run at 1440p. Your monitors most likely can't.

You have a fullsize displayport on your card. If your monitor have a displayport output, use it.

And both your DVI ports are fullsize - so you can use those aswell.

Your HDMI will 99% sure not work with your resolution. Use it to your TV is fine though.
