Asus GeForce GTX 660 compatible with Qnix QX2710?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well I'm thinking on buying a: Asus GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II OC 2GB GDDR5, but I've a Qnix Qx2710 and I'm a bit worried of compatibility since I've read some grpahics card are incompatible with it.

So could anyone tell me if the Geforce GTX 660 is compatible with Qnix QX2710 ?

And also would you reccommend me to buy Asus GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II OC 2GB GDDR5 or would you reccommend me some other grpahics card for the same price range (180€ [240$])


Thank you biggrin.gif

I was thinking of getting that monitor! Is it worth it? The Glossy edition from Ebay is only $301.

The best information on compatibility I can give you is the VGA compatibility chart in the pictures here.

It only goes up to GTX 580 but clearly the trend is 100% Nvidia compatibility for older hardware so I'd assume that all newer hardware is also accepted. You definitely need to go Ti if you want that card to be useful for a while though.

Your first option is a faster 3GB model for good forward compatibility. I have an MSI GTX770 Lightning 2GB and I thoroughly regret it being 2GB already. Next gen consoles have 8GB vram. Games have been held back with low amounts of vram for a while so the ram in these new consoles will definitely take typical ram usage up a few notches. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121767 $259.

Your second option is a slightly lower clocked 2GB ASUS 660Ti, however this one is special not because of specs, but because of price! It's an open box model so expect no documentation and a scratch or something, but never damage. BTW, you can still return these. Thay're goon in that they basically guarantee a 0% chance of DOA as they've been used in a demo rig before. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121656R $181 is a good buy. I'd tell you to buy 2 and be done with it but that 2GB of vram will not be future proof for long and that's outside your budget anyways.

Edit: No problem! thumb.gif

Hard to fathom that a GTX 660 wouldn't have dual link DVI support (which is what those monitors require and why they don't work with all graphics cards), but I did a quick google search of "asus gtx 660 dual link dvi" and according to asus's website, it has 1 dual link dvi port, so it should work.

Dual link DVI is a given. Not putting it on a card would almost be like making an AGP graphics card now. It would be useless.
