Don't know if I had DHL send mine, but I was charged £50 on a £220 monitor. Not bad - £44 was VAT and £6 was "admin charges" which seems fairly reasonable compared to what others have been charged in the US.

I had to pay custom duties 40£ and admin charges another 25£, and thats with the price of panel reduced to 100£. That's the cheap ****land - Lithuania for u lol.

Warning to any newer nvidia card owners. The new drivers are bricking some GPUS.. Please do not update to these new drivers as you could brick your GPU..Or stop you from playing bf3.. It is rare bt I thought I would let you guys know..

Educated myself a bit more. I do have two DVIs (Twin Frozr 7870 for reference,) but is a single, while the other dual. Would I be able to run one of these through a S-DVI, or use some kind of cable to go DL-DVI? I'm pretty noob with monitors..
post #3217 of 25887
ok I am convinced, I've gathered my funds and am ready to order one. Are there any sellers that are recommended over others? or any I should avoid? or should I just go with the cheapest?

Really there a few that stand out but it would not be good to induce a monopoly so we can aid a little in keeping price down. I usually look more towards price and warranty(dead pixel count acceptance and what not). Also some of the known good ones would be:

Hulustar
Bigclothcraft
dreamseller
accessorieswhole

All have had pretty good results with a few minor issues. Overall the better we have encountered. Anyone else chime in if you have had good results with another seller.

I assume you are asking about running more than one? No the card needs dual link dvi port to push this res (D or I). Period.

Hey Wrigley, that's what I thought too; but my Catleap is running @ 2560x1440x60hz on the 2nd DVI socket of my 7950 with the Qnix @ 120hz on the 1st one - and I know that all AMD cards only have one DL-DVI socket...

So I'm not quite sure what's going on... like you stated, I thought the SL-DVI spec didn't support WQHD res at all but it seems to work. Can someone explain to this noob LOL? headscratch.gif

PS Both CRU & CCC state that both monitors are DL-DVI (well actually I've just noticed, after a driver update, that CCC now says Catleap is DL-DVI and the Qnix is DDC) so I'm even further confuzzled.... thinking.gif
