Hey Brightbus, what adapter are you using to run your second monitor?

Hey guys,

I've been lurking in this thread since about 30-40 pages ago and really considering purchasing a 27inch monitor. I currently own a 24" LG 1920x1200. I've had it for over 5 years and now I think its dying. I'm seeing random dark burn in spots and they never seem to go away and seems to be slowly getting worse.

However, i own a 5850. One of the video cards that isn't recommended. I've researched and most people can still use these monitors but some are unable to view to bios. Bios is pretty important to me since i o/c my computer. I don't really need to o/c the monitor though but am highly interested.

Since it's been 5 years, I believe its definitely time to upgrade. My question is, will 5850 work with bios and how would you guys enjoy your monitor without o/cing it? Thanks in advance.

someone should put this on first page

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnVkA6ZcoQv5piavGXZDJv3Wj2E4MT_iE

it shows how to open it up and tape mod etc...

btw for those of you who can't hit 120Hz stable, just run 96Hz instead of 100,110 etc..

If you are not going to OC it then maybe get a Monoprice with all of the inputs..I have one right now and its a great monitor but it will not OC at all without frame skipping.Plus it is guaranteed pixel perfect with a year warranty..

I really don't need any inputs other than the DVI from my desktop. Won't ever need to connect it to my TV since I will always have a set top box. Currently I have an Andriod XMBC set top box to stream everything.

I like the cheap price + the option to o/c since I play PC games more than consoles. Its either I purchase a dell 2413hm for $300 or an 27in for $300. I figure maybe a 27in + $40-50 more for a squaretrade 3 year warranty would be better.

Mine is on the way right now..I paid $317 plus the $50 for warranty from Hulustar..Whatever you choose don't go with dream seller as there have been issues with them lately..

All the info is on the HMRC website, you won't have to pay anything if the item is a gift and under £36 in value. Hulustar marked mine as a gift and £36.10 value (I asked for £35...) and I paid about £12 in duties. Make sure to contact the seller immediately after the sale about the customs declaration otherwise you might get a very large bill.

I have a 5870 (also on the unsupported list) and I can see the bios. I have a QNix.
