- Will this work under Windows 8?
- Do I need to do anything special with the drivers to get this to work?
- Can I even mix and match ATI and NVIDIA cards on the same system?
- if I want to "future-proof" it even further, can I stick in 4 of the above cards (2 in the x16 slots and 2 in the x8 slots) and have access to 8 monitors?
In another thread, I wrote:If your monitors have only DVI and no DisplayPort input, you will definitely want some Active mini-DisplayPort to DVI adapters. This one is single-link DVI, so it's only good up to 1920x1200 @60Hz.

If your monitors are higher resolution than 1920x1200 each, you'll need a dual-link DVI adapter, which is more expensive.

If your PSU can supply enough amps over the 12V rails, you can just use an adapter that combines 2 4-pin molex connectors to that 6-pin thing.sid1089 wrote:I did look at the 7770. It is good card, no doubt. However, it is a tad over my budget. Additionally, my PSU doesn't have a 6 pin power connector. So I would also have to purchase a PSU if I went for the 7770.
