VisionTek 900614 Radeon HD 7750 2GB GDDR5 PCIe 6x mini DP Video Card (Eyefinity 6)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 6 monitors on one card!

Working great with Debian "Jessie" linux + e17 but... see cons.

Currently running 3 monitors at my sit station and 3 mirrors of those monitors at my standing station for 6 total. Two monitors at each station are rotated to provide more vertical space.

Also ran 5 in a long row with three rotated. And, tried a layout with some horizontally oriented monitors above other horizontally oriented monitors. All layouts worked fine with the card. I mention this because another reviewer said he had trouble with any layout but 3 on top and 3 below, but maybe that was a Windows issue he was having.

Cons: Had to run the binary blob fglx driver to get this card to work properly. Hopefully the free radeon driver will work in the future. With the free driver, rotation did not work properly among other issues.

Other Thoughts: All the modern monitors I've connected to the card have worked fine with every display port adapter I tried. But, I have two older NEC monitors that would not work at all with the card with 4 different brands of displayport to dvi or vga adapters. They work with some no-brand Chinese displayport to vga adapter though. So, if issues, try swapping your adapters (a bunch of times), you might find one that works.

ASRock QC5000-ITX/WiFi AMD FT3 Kabini A4-5000 Quad-Core APU Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: mini-pcie slot for wifi
small and fast enough for my needs YMMV

Running Debian "Jessie" Linux on it.

Cons: The displayport and DVI are shared ports. You have to select one or the other to be active in the bios. I was really dissapointed in this, but I guess not enough to knock off an egg. The HDMI and VGA are dedicated separate ports though.

Board is a little finicky with USB stuff. A USB bluetooth adapter I have that works fine on other systems, causes this one to not boot (the bios won't finish posting, if the dongle is plugged in when the system is started up).

Other Thoughts: Replaced wifi with Atheros card for better free software support. Also added a second antenna with the new card (the motherboard back plate has a punchout for a second antenna.

The HD 8330 built-in graphics requires bleading edge xorg stuff to work with the free driver. Installed xserver-xorg-core and xserver-xorg-video-radeon from Debian Experimental, (it did not need to pull in any scary dependencies from experimental). Video works great now.

CORSAIR XMS 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model CMX16GX3M2A1333C9
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works fine, decent price.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Using with a fanless AMD-C60 mini-itx board (ASUS C60M1-I AMD) that claims to only support 8GB, but works fine with these sticks for 16GB RAM.
