Kind of a tough question. I have an apartment in Easley, which is where I WOULD be living, if I didn't need to finish school. Me and my wife live apart, which sucks...

I currently live in Charleston, (Ladson, near Summerville) which is where I grew up.

They DO make DP to Dual Link DVI adapters, and they are not cheap -- about 3x the price of a "cheap" DP to Single Link DVI-D adapter. Here's one of the most cost effective ones on the market, ignore the "Thunderbolt" and "Mac" references in the text, it will work on a PC and goes from mini-DP (aka Thunderbolt connector) to DVI-D Dual Link.

You fixed it the right way though - a DP to DP cable direct from your card to monitor is the way to go!

Yes, I pretty much realized this before I posted, I was just hoping you guys would give me a magical way to fix it without spending monies. The reason I got it in the first place was the packaging. I did realize that it needed to be 'active', but at the time, I just wanted to get all 3 monitors hooked up anyways.

Sorry to hear that. I lived 40 minutes away from you in Fountain Inn.

Ahaha, I got lost there about 2 weeks ago. On the other side of Simpsonville right?
Just went to s a show right down the road from you last week while I was up. Good to see there ARE (or were...) nerds in the upstate. (using the term in a good way ^^)

Yup, right by Simpsonville. And no.. there isn't. I was the laughing stock of my school, God forbid you be smart and aren't a redneck. I'm pretty sure most of the people I was forced to be around wouldn't even know what a CPU is, let alone know how to use a computer...

I only knew one person in my school who was a nerd (still keep in contact) but I was far from a laughing stock. I was pretty popular in school tho.

Then again, things in Charleston are a little different. We have red necks but they seem to be pretty cool.

My whole class dressed up in camo to mock me because I didn't talk like a redneck even though I'm from Tennessee. Yup, I was hated in high school. XD
