Probably 2460. Looks good, has passive cooling and four display ports and comes at a reasonable price.

Yes, but here in Germany, I didnīt find a shop where to buy it. Do you know one? ;-)

Thanks!

Maybe, you did not want to buy it from a Belgian reseller.

"Display Port" Video Cards to Monitors?

First, I am no techy, so forgive me for my questions.

The video cards mentioned on this thread, mostly, require hooking up your monitors with a "Display Port" cable. After doing a search, most monitors with a "Display Port" cost much more than monitors with a VGA and/or DVI input port.

So, do you use an adapter?

What are the thoughts on something like this instead?

Just thought I would ask before I make a BIG mistake.

Thanks!

DVI and Display Ports have different specifications and do not have process electronical signals. You should therefore purchase a graphics adapter, which is compatible to both specifications.

New graphics adapters from NVidia or AMD will autodetect whether they are connected to a DVI or DisplayPort Monitor.

Example: NVidia graphics adapter NVS 295 has two DisplayPorts. You can use them to connect two DVI monitors (via a DisplayPort - DVI-D adapter). This is possible, because the graphics adapter is capable of detecting, whether you have connected DisplayPort or DVI monitors.

In the same way you may connect 4 DVI monitors to the ATI FirePro 2460 Multi-View adapter.

What I do not know is whether you are allowed to connect different types of monitors (some of the DVI and some of them Displayport), I would not do that anyhow.

I returned the $3,000 F-25 from trading computers / falcon trading systems a couple weeks ago. It ran great but they advertised a massively powerful i7 sent me a Intel Xeon W3520, which isn't even offered in their line up.

I was pissed because it ranked 78th looking at the same benchmark test page fallout posted earlier.

The president of the company said they usually use i7 950 but assured me his guys got it running up to speed. But it wasn't as fast as the 950 out of the box so I wanted it replaced. He had the balls to tell me the processor is located in the hard drive so they could just mail me a new one...

What's weird is they might have been doing me a favor. A knowledgeable member here pointed out to me that Xeons are preferred for workstations. They can also support ECC memory that makes it less likely to crash.

My verdict is they use cheaper components but test the voltage settings closely (on the higher end models at least) while overclocking them to run well. If yours holds up you will probably love it and also love that they will remotely remove viruses for you.

I think I'm going with a Z400 because they make sure theres are running well too. I think a quad core xeon with at least 3ghz and 12mb ram is plenty - but am tempted to go all out on one of the six core w3600's so the CPU will stay fast.

Might eventually try and build one with 2 or 4 screens using fallout's recommendations to run charts on and so I don't have to leave the office to browse the internet and check mail.

Another cuestion regarding the graphic card, using two of them is possible (to handle up to 8 monitors)?

Yeah but some motherboards only have 1 PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot so you should check compatibility.
