Doing Eyefinity soon - DP to DVI adapter

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I will be getting a 3rd monitor (Acer g235h) to finally set up eyefinity soon.

From what I've been reading, I need a DisplayPort to DVI adapter since the monitors only have DVI/VGA inputs.

I've been looking at this:

Is there a difference between single link and dual link and is this the right adapter?

If I recall from a long long time ago, the only DP to DVI adapter that worked was one from sapphire. Something about other brands screwing things up, could be wrong though, it was awhile ago.

I'm going to pick mine up at Fry's, since I am a person that hates to wait while the item is shipped.

Good thing I'm getting an almost identical adapter , it increases chances of my setup actually working tongue.gif
