One of my clients is working on Video Editing. He has a small studio and now he has a big problem.Mr. Anderson said:you want to have 3 monitors on one machine?
with all that display real estate, what will you be doing?
Thank you for the answer.RGunner said:Geforce 6800U or 6800GT with ATI 9200 ME (PCI)
ATI X800 with 2 x ATI 9200 ME (PCI)
Geforce 6800U or 6800GT with ATI 7000 ME (PCI)
ATI x800 with 2 x ATI 7000 ME (PCI)
6800 will drive 30" and a 23" with remainder from PCI card
X800 will drive single 30" and you will need 2 PCI cards
We are talking about PCI-X, not PCI slot. (dual G5, 2.5GHz)ChrisBrightwell said:You need an AGP card that can drive the 30" display (and possibly one of the 23" displays) and PCI card that can push one or both 23" displays.
I do not think the x800 will support 2 DVI (digital) displays. I think its problem is it will only do a single 30" and then 1 VGA (analog) if one desired.MrSugar said:Although the X800 does run only 30, you can run 2 monitors off of it (unless I am wrong on the specs). So you could have a x800 setup with just 2 cards. PCI and the X800 card
Regardless, does the same principle not apply?AkosPapp said:We are talking about PCI-X, not PCI slot. (dual G5, 2.5GHz)
Yeah, but aren't there plenty of dual-DVI PCI cards out there?RGunner said:I do not think the x800 will support 2 DVI (digital) displays. I think its problem is it will only do a single 30" and then 1 VGA (analog) if one desired.
You are on the right track with everything you have said but that statement.ChrisBrightwell said:Yeah, but aren't there plenty of dual-DVI PCI cards out there?
Actually, since we're talking Mac, you're probably right.RGunner said:I know of no Dual DVI PCI cards, now you might have me on that one.. but I cannot remember or think of one.
Thats OK.yippy said:The Radeon X800 has a dual-link DVI and an ADC port. So you could power the 30" and a 23" with an ADC->DVI adapter.
Any suggestions for the "Best Buy" card?yippy said:That means you only need one PCI graphics card to drive the last display.
try the contact button and send them an e-mail, since they are custom build they will have custom pricing as well off coursemashinhead said:how do you buy one of those, i don't even see a price
