Not what I needed

Summary: I'm giving this thing 5 stars just because I ordered it by mistake but it looks cool. This was not the part that I needed however it did fit into a Dell XPS exactly like it was supposed to. Since I did have to return the item I will comment on that as well... Amazon return = EASY! I was very grateful for that!!
Summary: issues with video card from day one. both monitors work via hdmi (1) or (2) or through mini display port. problem is with audio. visiontek who makes it says it will stream different audio to three different devices which just is not true. read about that here: http://www.visiontek.com/7000-series/7750-dual-hdmi.html you get one HDMI that throws out audio, PERIOD. also, now, when I turn on the computer the monitor does not even recognize the video card is working.
Summary: I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 with Gnome 3, and now that I got it working, it's fantastic. As I recall, though, I had to apt-get install something called mesa-utils, then find the Software Sources Additional Drivers menu and select the development drivers, then disable the xrandr service or whatever, and then run some arcane command to make it so it wouldn't reset the underscan setting every time I logged out. No pain no gain, right?
Summary: Well, the documentation is pretty much non-existent. You screw it in based on how it looks like it fits. You play around with the settings on the computer until it seems to work. For advanced users.
Summary: With Windows 7, I had hdmi sound issues on my tv, would work then stop working so after trying different drivers I ended up uninstalling the AMD catalyst software suite. Works perfect without catalyst installed. Removed 1 star because AMD hasn't fixed an ongoing hdmi sound issue, Once I started looking into a fix I discovered many are having the same issue.
