Cost-effective Video Card Upgrade

Summary: This item replaced the Radeon 4250 that was originally in my Dell Inspiron 530. It plays every game I've tried smoothly. It also works well (with the fglrx driver) in Lubuntu 14.04. I use the HDMI and DVI (with a DVI-HDMI cable) outputs to connect two monitors for extended desktop.
Supplemental : Cards Abilities Are Not Properly Given

Summary: The specs, description and the inclusion of two VGA adapters give the indication that two analog displays can be used with this card out of the box.That is not the case. If you want a card of this GPU type that is low profile and dual DVI + MDP + 1 VGA this card can cover your needs.
Pros: I still think the card is of good build quality.
Cons: I have conversed with Diamond tech support and this card is simply not designed to drive two analog displays with the included hardware. If you have or are thinking about getting this card for that purpose a Mini Display port to VGA adapter will be required. Diamond is not supplying me with one t...
Summary: I have only received 2 of these cards and thus I could have had some bad luck. PCIe v3.0 cards are not cheap right now so the price for the card is solid but the cards and accompanying parts are not up to spec.
Pros: The heatsink is large and the fan is quiet. The image signal must be good since the monitors I have had it hooked up to show a nice picture.It is a low profile card that fits in the Antec Minuet case easily.
Cons: I have tried out two of these. The first one is giving no signal on the second monitor line. The second card came with a backplane bracket that was punched wrong and thus cannot be attached to the card without breaking the DMS-59 connector off from the board. Diamond used to be one of the most re...
SLOW Diamond tech support *verified* both GPUs I purchased were defective. Both should be capable of 2560 x 1600 via Dual-Link DVI as shown CLEARLY on Diamond's web-site spec sheet.

Summary: On a side note, people really should take the time to educate themselves and properly understand simple technology better before commenting and potentially giving bad advice/information to prospective Newegg shoppers.
Pros: As noted in my initial review, these cards are very solidly built.. Diamond must have a good manufacturing contract because they are definitely better than average build quality.
Cons: Unfortunately, that attention to quality doesn't seem to extend to the card's actual capabilities. These cards are clearly advertised on the Diamond web-site as being able to display 2560 x 1600 via the DL-DVI Y-adapter to drive (2) monitors at that resolution, but are not capable of doing so. Si...
Summary: IF YOU WANT 2560 x 1600 RESOLUTION, YOU NEED TO USE THE MINI DISPLAY PORT and NOT THE DVI!
Pros: Does 4096 x 2160 resolution. The poster complaining about not doing 2560 resolution by the first initial "H" should read the specs. "H" just bought it less than a month ago and I doubt New Egg just put "(Display Port)" within the last few weeks. So it isn't buyer beware, but "buyer read the specs...
Bought (2), both are defective out of box & will not display 2560 x 1600 rez, ZERO customer service. Caveat Emptor!

Summary: I contacted Diamond support via their web-site trouble ticket system TWELVE DAYS ago (5/16/2014). As of 5/28/2014 I have yet to hear back from them. Nothing, nada, zilch. Not even a weak attempt to pretend they care whether or not their customers have working products.
Pros: Yes, it's cliche' by now...but "buyer beware." I'm a very patient person and realize that most of the time problems get worked out if given enough time. However, in this case I am left with defective products and zero customer support. I picked up (2) of these low profile 7750s to throw in a coup...
Cons: These cards are advertised to do 2 x Dual-Link DVI out, but beware they are incapable of displaying this resolution. Simply put, neither GPU I purchased will actually display 2560 x 1600 resolution to either of my perfectly functioning Dell 30" monitors. 2560 x 1600 seems to be a "paper spec" onl...
Summary: Tried getting this card up and running under Ubuntu and had some difficulties. Once past that it worked fine. Since it doesn't explicitly state support I will let that slide. Worked right out of the box as expected under Win7.
