    FS: PNY GTX 970

    Bought this card brand new two months ago; PNY says their cards don't support active DisplayPort adapters which I need for my Qnix monitors. Card is pristine. Asking $250.

    970 with active DisplayPort adapters

    I have two from Monoprice that I'm using right now and a spare StarTech that I've also tried. I've tried with the USB power plugged into the PC as well as a powered USB hub. All three adapters work fine on the AMD cards I just replaced. Never had any of these issues before switching to the PNY.

    970 with active DisplayPort adapters

    From what I'm reading it's not just EVGA cards that have issues SLIing. It looks like there's some issue with Nvidia's drivers that prevents two cards SLIing together from any manufacturer or sometimes even the same make and model from different batches. I've found a ton of threads on various...

    970 with active DisplayPort adapters

    I posted a while back about how my new PNY 970 was causing all sorts of issues with my Qnix 1440p monitors because of the active DP adapters I have to use. The much older AMD card I was replacing never had such issues, so I know it's not the monitors or the adapters. My question is: Are...

    One of three screens goes black momentarily

    I wasn't aware of that, but I'll do some checking. They're just what I happened to have already since the 6950s require them. I was really hoping someone would reply with "Oh yeah, that's a known issue with Nvidia and active DP adapters. You just have to do X to fix it." Doesn't look like...

    One of three screens goes black momentarily

    It only happens on whichever panels are plugged into the DisplayPorts. It seems completely random which of the two blanks out and when. The panel plugged into the DVDI port (with no adapter) never blanks out. None of the three blank out when plugged into the 6950s.

    One of three screens goes black momentarily

    Never happened on the 6950s. Not sure I made that clear. Only happens on the GTX 970.

    One of three screens goes black momentarily

    My setup until recently: 2x 6950s 3x Qnix displays. One DVDI, two with active DP adapters to mini DP ports. I just swapped out the 6950s for a PNY GTX 970 and everything works fine... most of the time. Every hour or so one of the two DP screens will black out for a few seconds. It...

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    I'm trying to decide which 970 to go for, but need someone with multiple 1440p monitors to chime in and set me straight. Currently I have 3x Qnix 1440p monitors running off 2x 6950s. Now, on AMD's 6950s, only one DVI port can be used as dual link and the other DVI port becomes inoperable...

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    I've been out of the GPU game for ages now. I don't think I've ever even heard of Palit. How's their reputation around here? PNY has a pretty bad rep for their bogus warranty from what I can tell.

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    I get that. I was just responding to the bit about it being the Nvidia default. The Nvidia default (ie the reference design) has 3x DP. I just want a reference 970 with 3x DP and blower cooler for SLI. I don't think that's asking too much. I might just roll the dice with PNY's shitty...

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    Not sure what you mean. Reference spec for the 970 seems to be: Dual Link DVI-I, HDMI 2.0, 3x DisplayPort 1.2 Most cards on market right now (all except PNY and Gigabyte?) only have one DisplayPort.

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    I'm having a difficult time deciding. I've always loved EVGA but they, like practically everyone else, are for some reason only putting one DisplayPort on their 970s. PNY seems to be the only one who isn't, and I've heard awful things about their so-called "lifetime" warranty. I need those...
