Edited: Forgot to use the amd patcher on my new graphics cards, now its all fixed. Thanks.

Yeah I did the same thing upgraded to 8.1 and forgot to run the patcher couldn't figure out why it wouldn't work

IIRC, you can not use any sort of adapter. It needs to be DVI > DVI only.

Dual link DVI. Active display port adapters do work but they are like $80.

1440p resolutions (and Qnixes) are not compatible with HDMI->DVI adapters.

That sucks mad.gif
Wasted €10,-
Well, I just ordered a 5450 (cheapest GPU I could find) and I will just use that until I get the 290 biggrin.gif

So it appears that I do not have a single dead pixel, nice. And it did 120hz without any problems last night.

Ehh, 5450 may NOT work.
I have a Sapphire 5450 1GB version, and the monitor did not post when I tried to use it. Only works with my 7870LE..
I don't know if it's the GPU vendor or something, or the GPU is just not capable. Quite misleading, as the ebay sellers say that there is support for the 5450.
post #9018 of 25899
5450 worked for me. XFX passive with 512MB. Saw BIOS, did not actually boot an OS, though that should be good enough. Have one in my server box and hooked the QNIX up to it at one point to test when I could not get video signal suddenly on main rig (turned out needed to tighten cable completely on display connection side on both top and bottom pins).

Does that GPU work on other monitors?

But does the Qnix work and show stuff when you connect it to the 5450?

Who has a cheap GPU working with the Qnix?

if anyone wants to buy anything from monoprice let me know and I can email you a $5 off coupon and I get a 10$ credit for referring people. They generally have very good products for resonable prices. Honesty: the shipping speed has sucked a little bit in my opinion.

About to pull the trigger on one of these monitors. For those that may not know monoprice does really cheap overnight shipping if you live in California. I think its a flat $5 last time I bought a huge box of stuff to rewire the entire house for HDMI and ethernet.
