Default Re: Need help with finding graphics card

If there is one, it's rather pointless.

DVI-I is DVI-D with the addition to analog output. Besides the 4 little pins for analog output it's the same. Wanting dual link AND analog is kinda dumb because I don't know of an analog device that would require that kind of resolution. Even still, if there IS a need for that, an active DP to VGA adapter will do the same thing while providing higher bandwidth. So most all modern cards that have 2 DVI ports are usually both dual link, while one of them being DVI-I. If such a thing existed, it would more than likely be on a specialty card like a professional card. So then you have to look at AMD FirePRO cards to retain Eyefinity support.

Nobody else reply to this guys thread. Buddy, don't try posting on reputable sites with lies. I'm not sure if you were referring to me, but never did I say AMD cards had 2 dual link DVI-I ports, and never did I ask anything about your personal life. I'm glad TPU is giving you hell over the same dumb questions.
