Will my build work with a QNIX? - Page 3

I don't unfortunately

I appreciate that you're trying to help, but can you please drop the argument that I don't have the dual link port. I 100% do, I can see it with my own eyes, and the product specifications page specifically says it has dual link DVI. If you're gonna convince it me it doesn't exist you're gonna have to show some proof.

This seems like it is the issue. I'll try to figure out if there's a way around it, if not I guess I'll have to buy a graphics card. Do you know what I'm supposed to be looking for specifically to make sure that it will work?

I'm not planning on watching movies, I'm using this computer only for lots of poker tables so having the resolution is awesome but I don't actually need anything fancy.

Could you explain what these certain situations are? My motherboard has only been on the market a couple months, has the right port and supports the resolution, so if there's a workaround it should work for me.

Any way .... even crappy production computers like Dell's or HP's have GPU's. FYI.
I have dual link DVI so this isn't the problem.

It's not a big deal to buy a GPU, it was my original plan but I was convinced that since my graphics needs are super low I should just get a nice motherboard instead. Looks like I'm probably gonna have to buy a GPU anyways.

How many dual link ports are there in the below picture?




The answer is zero. (that's an MSI lightning 7970; which doesn't have dual link DVI)

Just because a DVI port *looks* like it's dual link, doesn't mean it is dual link.

What you can try - set your refresh rate to 30hz (2560x1440@30hz). If it works at that, then unfortunately, you have your proof that your motherboard does not have a dual link DVI port.

If your monitor has multiple inputs, like this one, and your motherboard has DisplayPort, it will work just fine with integrated graphics.

Also, try the reduced refresh rate option.

So when I boot the computer with the monitor already plugged in I get the flashing lights

when I plug the monitor in after the boot I get nothing.

If you don't have another computer that's got a DL-DVI port, then better buy a cheapo graphics card.

Pretty much any GPU over the last 5-6 years will power it. The reason i said to get a GT610 is that it is dirt cheap and all you really need for browsing/watching videos and movies at 1440p. You won't be able to game basically at all on it, but since that doesn't seem to be a need for you it's what I would recommend.
