VisionTek 900639 DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI-D Active Adapter (M/F)
  • Verified Owner

1 out of 5 eggs Does not work correctly 09/25/2013

This review is from: VisionTek 900639 DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI-D Active Adapter (M/F)

Pros: Cheap, works for cases where single-link DVI is sufficient.(1680x1050@60Hz, 1920x1080@60Hz)

Cons: Does not work when dual-link DVI bandwidth is required. (1680x1050@120Hz, 1920x1080@120Hz, 2560x1440@60Hz)

The only output is a black screen.

Other Thoughts: This adapter appears to only provide single link bandwidth. 2560x1440@40Hz (161MHz pixel clock) works with some visual glitches.

For reference, single-link DVI is designed for a maximum of 165MHz pixel clock.

Avoid this adapter if you are looking to use resolutions above 1920x1080 or refresh rates above 60Hz.

EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) DirectX 11 015-P3-1480-AR 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Fastest single-GPU card
- Excellent minimum FPS and smoothness
- Future-proof with DX11 support and efficient tessellation
- EVGA support is the best I have ever seen
- Supports software voltage control

Cons: - Fan is loud at 100%, but you won't need to run the fan at 100% as long as your case has good airflow. The fan noise is not a problem when playing games.

- VERY hard to find in stock right now

Other Thoughts: The heat and power problems are not as bad as some of the reviews say. The card won't exceed 90 C while gaming unless you rely on the auto fan profile. Overall this card is worth the price if you need the fastest single GPU card around.

Logitech G500 Black Chrome 10 Buttons Dual-mode Scroll Wheel USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: Excellent upgrade for anyone using a G5, it has the same basic shape but much higher DPI. I love the new Setpoint version that is exclusive to the G500 and G9 mice. It supports macros similar to those on the G11/G15/G19 keyboards. The extra side button is also a nice bonus over the G5.

Cons: - Firmware v1.0 has some issues with small precise movements (fixed in v1.1)

Other Thoughts: The firmware update tool is not very easy to find on Logitech's site but it is there.
