I've heard good things about these: http://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/dvi-cables/index.htm

Personally, I use one of these: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10209&cs_id=1020901&p_id=2687&seq=1&format=2

The latter is 10 feet because of my setup, but you could go shorter if you continue browsing on the site.

that a bit expensive for a cable.
if you have amazon prime I think this one is worth it based on reviews:

1) Pushing a 1080p signal from the graphics card to rely on the monitor's scaler - this does not work as the monitor lacks a scaler. It also means: forget about non-PC sources which don't support 1440p.

2) Pushing a 1080p resolution (rendered) while using GPU scaling - this outputs a 1440p signal from the graphics card but everything is rendered at 1080p internally - this DOES work.

Hope this helps.

Hi guys,

So I bought a New QNIX QX2710 LED from green-sum in June... and just today, with no probable cause that I can determine, it refuses to be turned on. The light indicator (red, blue blinker) is none-responsive, and for all intents and purposes seems like a power failure of some kind.

I checked the power adapter, and the blinker indicates green, so I'm assuming there's something wrong with the panel itself (short circuit or bad connection somehow). But I don't know if anyone else had a case like this, hoping some of you guys might know what to do.

I didn't get the warranty (silly me), so any help would be appreciated. If I end up buying another one, I'll be sure to fork over that 50 bucks... sigh

i got the x-star glossy and it was screwed in so i dont think its wise to try to yank it out

So I removed my one card. Now only running 1x GTX570. OMW my games won't be as smooth but at least it fixed my flickering. I can go as high as 96Hz won't try further cause I don't want to break the screen. I'm so happy I know what the issue is. Still could be the motherboards PCIe slot but not going to worry. Will just get a single card cause actually I had issues for so long now with this SLI system of mine. Just get a top of the line card like MSI lightning and overclock it like mad.

Edit: My GPu is not downclocking @ 96Hz when in idle. How can I force it to downclock

YazX, Qnix Evolution II OC result, can go with 120Hz but i noticed the screen becomes alittle bit dimmed, so lowered it to 100hz to get full brightness, and there is no actual difference between 120hz and 100hz, so 100hz is fine. no issues at all with the screen.
