What about a 280x with 2x DL-DVI CF with a 7970 (only 1 DL-DVI)?

Would you get the 2xDL-DVIs from the 280x or is it lowest common denominator?
I'm not that familiar with AMD/ATI cards, didn't even know you could CF a 280x with a 7970. Maybe someone with more AMD/ATI knowledge can help you on this one.

Should this be an issue for me since none of my flight sims have seen anywhere near 50fps on my current setup, so upgrading to bigger monitor (total) resolutions can only mean I'll be lucky if I get 40fps or more??

If that's not going to be an issue, then at least all I have to worry about now is BLB and dead pixels.

Another question: since I am planning to buy 3 monitors (possibly QNIX ones), should I buy all 3 at once and from one seller and possibly negotiate a discount price or should I buy one-at-a-time and maybe from different sellers?

What is the "no OC if using more than one monitor" issue? It must be an AMD/ATI thing. I'm running three at 96Hz right now using my NVidia setup.

AMD lets you CF different cards with the same core. 280x and 7970 will work but just not sure of limitations.
Nvidia will make you buy all new.

I wonder if this is the end of the overclockable QX2710 or just a tempory setback.

Time will tell, if they get enough people asking for them to keep sales up, maybe they will stay around or make new ones. They really need to fix their ads for the new ones, saying they overclock when they skip frames doing so is misleading to people who don't know better.

I've just contacted a few sellers asking. Yeah, don't even know why they kept the same model number as well.

Just registered to share my experience with dream-seller.

I bought a matte X-Star on March 6th when it was still at $279 and after several email conversations about defective monitors from their manufacturer, they have confirmed that my monitor will finally ship tomorrow. They also refunded me $10 for the delay, which is nice, but maybe a little underwhelming since it's going to be almost 3 weeks from order to delivery. If it comes without any major issues, then it will have been worth the wait for $269 because I see they've rocketed back up in price across the board.

I'll update when my monitor arrives.

Huh? Weird. Well, the guys I was quoting in my post said those things so I thought multi-monitors = no OC, but if you say you can.... cool!

Got 2 perfect pixel qnix matte from storewithstory. Never got a tracking email, but the track package on ebay was updating. Can't see a dead pixel yet, and not sure how much I want to search for them.

Got a dual monitor stand from ebay and got it all setup. A little nerve wracking taking the bezel apart for the stand removal, but it was much easier on the 2nd monitor. The ebay mount didn't have the right length screws so I used the metal bracket inside the monitor as a spacer between the vesa bracket and qnix.

The 2 monitor setup did not like being hooked into each DVI port on my XFX 7950. So I used the displayport adapter for one and the other is DVI, and all works fine.

Oops! Just found a single little dead pixel next to the top right corner (2 millimetres from the top edge )...So little is nearly cute...nearly.


By the way, anyone has any idea about my previous question? Will the monitor get damage by overclocking? The line appears on the bottom half and is nearly invisible at 96hz but I don't want it to get worse.

At 96hz it starts being a bit more evident against a white background although nothing annoying.

My question is if the line will get worse in time if I keep the monitor overclocked. Anyone has experience with this problem or has the same problem in his monitor?
