I seriously thought about that card. 6 mini hdmi adapters are used, does it come with all 6?

I didn't bother to SLI or Crossfire two cards, but I did look for cards that had at least 4 native HDMI ports, until I asked their tech support department, whether what I intended to use the card for, would fit within their purposeful specs. They suggested other cards, and not being dependent on 4 monitors being able to stretch across all. I was disappointed to say the least, after putting so much effort into that logical choice of one card, 4 monitors.

Not HDMI, DisplayPort. Yes, mini displayport. No adapters. Never use adapters. Just buy the right cable, mini-displayport to displayport in my case, x6.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

ok, that's what the problem was, display port. my monitors had hdmi and dvi-d, and I would've needed adapter/converters, and you're right, never adapt or convert, always pass through connectors. I think that was the other problem the techs at the company pointed out too.

oh well!

2540x1440 on a 23" Acer B233 platform was worth protecting, and what a monitor these are!

4 k Monitors

I currently use 2 Dell U3014T 30" 2560x 1600 and am considering one of the new 32" 4K monitors from LG, Dell, or BenQ.

Has anyone trued the new 32" 4K and compared it to the 30" (2560x1600).

I am using Ninja Trader and am thinking the additional resolution may not be all that useful.

Comments?
