It needs DVI-D or DVI-I; sure you don't have the latter? If not there is not an adapter that can rectify.

Ah, looking at the back now I see that it does indeed have the DVI-D, but the online specs for my HD6850 gigabyte dont display it.

Just to make certain the DVI-D are the ones that go: [ - ::::::: ]

Please do not confuse this further - it has already been explained.

For those that do need it explained again:
  • DVI-D = digital only DVI
  • DVI-I = analog+digital DVI
  • Both DVI-I and DVI-D can come in either dual-link or single-link
  • A DVI-D cable will plug into both DVI-D and DVI-I connectors
  • A DVI-I cable will only plug into DVI-I connectors
  • A TV/Monitor that has a DVI-D connector and only works with dual-link DVI can be connected via both a dual-link DVI-D and dual-link DVI-I from a gfx card, as long as a DVI-D cable is used - it will not work with a DVI-I cable, because a DVI-I has 4 extra pins that will not allow the cable to be plugged into a DVI-D connector

An image (from HERE) to illustrate:


I hope this clears this up for the last time.

Mine is definitely DVI-D DL, thanks everyone.

You guys think hulustar will accept an offer of $290? Anyone have luck making offers to them?

So what graphics cards are everyone using to power these things? Right now Im runninx crossfired 7870's but thinking about upgrading to 7970. Not sure if I should wait on amd's next gen or not.
(I'm running three monitors btw)
post #2468 of 25893
If everything is running without a hitch, I think it would be conventional to wait for AMD's next gen. That's what I am doing rather than replacing my HD 6850.

Reading the thread now though from the start I am having second thought about purchasing a Korean monitor, it seems like there's a lot of DIY repairing involved with them and it makes me nervous.

It feels like I'm taking a pretty big risk with one of these.

I'm running three, and I didn't have any issues with any of them. (one had one stuck pixel, the other two had none, minimal backlight bleed) But yes, it is a risk. If you live in the US theres always squaretrade for peace of mind. I need the graphical power for when I decide to run three screens. Some games have no issues since they aren't that demanding (80 fps on league of legends on three screens.) I was able to eek out 35 fps in bioshock with everything at max but man those cards sounded like jet engines, rather not run them like that for any extended period of time. With computers theres always something better coming out, amd still hasnt officially announced the desktop 8k/9k series and whether its coming out this year or next.
post #2470 of 25893
Do you play highly demanding games more than league?

In that case I would consider the 7970 to be worth it, as there is no point in having to wait a year or til the end of this year to enjoy your 3 monitor set up.

Gonna try to snipe a phone off ebay and if I don't manage to then I guess I'll pull the trigger on a Qnix qx2710 in matte.
