Am I misreading him?)

I do not think you are misreading the seller.
I believe the seller is doing the best job they can for making sure the buyer has a computer that can work with these 27" 2560X1440 monitors.
Your motherboard has only been on the market for 3 months, so it has a very modern on-board graphics interface.
So most users of on-board graphics in the world would not have your motherboard's graphics abilities.
The seller can't really go around buying every new motherboard and testing the on-board graphics with very model of monitor they sell.

So my monitor isn't working

In the beginning it would just show one solid color which would change every couple seconds, once I installed the driver for the on board graphics it simply stopped displaying anything.

Anyone have an idea what the problem might be? Should I just buy a new graphics card?

The problem is that your motherboard doesn't have a dual link DVI port. (see my first post) You will need a graphics card at this point; pretty much any graphics card will work with the Qnix.

My motherboard 100% does have a dual link DVI port

I can plug it in and everything, the monitor just isn't working.

You can check the specifications page linked earlier, it clearly does have a dual link dvi port, as everyone else in this thread agreed with. There must be some other issue.

I didn't agree that it had a dual link port.

Do you have another computer that does have a graphics card that you can use to test the monitor?

It doesn't matter, Qnix/X-Star do not work with onboard graphics. In any case if you plan on watching movies/videos you're really gonna want at least a GT610 anyways.

It can work with onboard graphics. Just... in *certain* situations, and this isn't one of them.

^ this ... I believe those monitors only have DVI-D and HDMI but with HDMI you're limited.

Any way .... even crappy production computers like Dell's or HP's have GPU's. FYI.

Looks like this is the problem, the x-star is a bypass model

Maybe the onboard graphics card skips the boot page? Is there any way to change that?
