DELL Win 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

Ya, guess I should have thrown out that box a long time ago! ISA, EISA, VESA ! Ah the good old days. ATI was quite popluar then - ATI Wonder series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Forget selling them - maybe the Smithsonian would buy them :)

Pleased to report it all worked out perfectly right out of the box:
  • easily slipped into my only x16 slot ; 6 pin power connection at front
  • hooked up 3 monitors (each had DVI and VGA- used DVI on all three)
    • Monitor 1 (Dell 19" LCD) DVI port > DVI-to-DVI cable > card DVI port 1
    • Monitor 2 (Dell 19" LCD) DVI port > DVI-to-DVI cable > card DVI port 2
    • Monitor 3 (LG 19" LCD - Wide) DVI port > DVI-to-HDMI cable > card HDMI port
  • loaded drivers, catalyst s/w
  • control pannel saw all three monitors, and extended them all
  • cards DP port not used (needed only for fourth)
  • no DP adaptors bundled ; many other convencience adaptors included , eg:
    • DVI to HDMI
    • DVI to VGA

  • approx $130 CDN ; $10 rebate coming later
  • youtube demo here (not mine)
    Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 Flex Edition 1GB DX11 Video Card Review - YouTube
  • many tech reviews on line
The old 1GB 5760 card it replaced is now in another WIn 7 machine also working well (in turn replacing a 256MB HD 5450).

So, I got two machines upgraded out of this, and most important, 3 monitors running as desired. YAY!

Appreciate all the discussion here - thank you.

Happy Camper !
