VERY Misleading Advertising for Eyefinity; Lousy 2d acceleration/refresh
10 February 2010
Summary: For those of you hoping to run 3 monitors with this card - BEWARE!!! The main reason I bought the card is for Eyefinity - ATI's multi-monitor feature. I thought I understood what I needed to run 3 monitors from researching ATI's website. It looked like all I needed was a $30 adapter listed as 'certified' on AMD/ATI's website which could convert the DisplayPort-out to HDMI-in on my monitor.
Summary: I purchased this card via Amazon and the order was shipped through CompUSA/TigerDirect. I've actually done a lot of business with Tigerdirect and the card shipped and arrived very fast. When I got the card, I could see that the box had already been opened. When I installed the card, The card had definately been used, abused and returned by somebody else because the backplate that screws into the computer chasis was bent almost double.
Summary: I am extremely unhappy with this product. If I had not thrown away the box (I don't know why I did that) I would have returned it. The problem is that I have literally not been able to play a single game without it blue-screening my computer. I have done a memory test and my RAM is fine... I just keep getting video driver failures - and I have the most up-to-date drivers. I hope ATI updates their drivers soon. Seriously, don't buy this product - learn from my mistake!
