I own an hd 6850 toxic from sapphire and i am connecting my lcd using dvi to vga converter to one of the dvi outputs( first connection )
my card outputs are :
Mini Display Port x 2
and VGA (Via included adaptor)
to use eyefinety as i know it must have one connected in a display port output so one of the mini display ports must be used in my card , the card was provided with a " Mini DP to DP Adapter " and i will buy the " Sapphire 44000-01-40R Active DisplayPort to VGA adapter " for 57 $ i will connect through it a cheap VGA READY LCD .( third connection )
1- is this connection correct ??
2- for now ( second connection ) i will buy a DVI-D ready lcd but i am confused , i dont know how to use dual link dvi output in my card
i even dont know if the ( first connection ) is connected to the dual or single link
please help me to know if the dvi-d ready lcd would work if i connected it in DL-DVI-I and in SL-DVI-D ???
i am talking with sapphire and waiting there reply
but may i ask , as i was googloing about this ( regardless the dual or single link )
is this statment correct :
There is an 2 DVI ports of 6850. the 1st one is a DVI-I which supports a VGA to DVI adapter.
The 2nd one is a DVI-D which does not support an adapter and you need to have a monitor with DVI cable output in
order to make it work.
if it is like that then because dvi-i supports both analog and digital and dvi-d supports only digital as far as i know
so the dvi ready lcd wich i ordered will work what ever is the output
