  1. If you aren't doing any dual-monitor gaming and just want to run windows on dual monitors, I'd suggest the 6670.

    But if you play a game from time to time then the 6850 will be best for you.

  2. just stick to either the hd6670 or hd6570. Your 255w psu won't hold anything higher. Both of those cards have dual link dvi connectors.

    Actually, it looks like 16amp is a bit too low for the hd6670, just get the hd6570. Getting the hd6670 would be too risky since your psu is well below 300w.

    Sorry, scratch the bit about the 6850, I forgot the PSU was just 255W. I looked at some 6570s and none had dual-link dvi, just a dvi and vga. I suppose it will work fine with an adapter, so go for the 6570.

    All of them are dual link.
  5. You sure? It says that each one only has 1xdvi
  6. ^^that

    but I guess it doesn't matter as long as op can connect 2 monitors.
  7. Yes I am sure. Look at the connector, not what Newegg says. Those are definitely dual link connectors. They are almost always very inaccurate on specs.

  8. Yes, but the video cards on the photos only have one DVI and one VGA connector on them.
  9. Yea, and that DVI is dual link one.

  10. I understand that it's dual link :D But I don't understand how the OP can plug in two DVI monitors in one DVI port and one VGA port. That's what I'm asking.
  11. Well, first of all, he never said he needed two DVI ports. He could use DVI with HDMI, or DVI with VGA. Or he could use HDMI to DVI adapter/cable.
