anybody have any strange issues with ATI Cards and the DVI connection to the 2001FP?

No. Mine works fine. Using Cat 4.11. If you are make sure your DVI connection is snug any loose connection can cause any sorts of problems.

Same, no problems with Cat 4.10 and 9800 Pro. What sort of problems are you having?

hey guys, quick question....how long is the DVI cord that comes with this monitor?

i just ordered one earlier (took me a few more days than i hoped, but should be here next tuesday or wensday...i hope)

I need to know the length, because i have VGA extensions going to my computer, and im going to have to buy a DVI extension....but they dont recommend extending it more than 15ft, and although thats not a problem (anymore) i still need to figure out if im going to buy a 10ft extension or a 6ft one....

anyway, please reply soon, i want to order the DVI extension tonight.....heh

i can't answer your question about the length of the standard cable but i can say that i have a friend who needed a DVI run of about 70 feet, and i think he used some cat5 ethernet wiring to accomplish this because of the expense of such lengthy DVI cable... point being, you can probably go longer than 15 feet without hurting the digital signal...

though i never did hear back about how well the hacked-up solution worked :rofl: :s

Yeah no problems here either, 2001FP is on an Gigabyte's X800 XT PE(DVI), super pretty, problems free.

However, i did also run 2001FP on my older card GF3 Ti-200(DVI). i did notice it kinda flashes to a blank screen every 5 seconds when i was playing America's Army @ 1280 X 960. But it doesnt do that if i play at lower resolution, i still dunno why tho.

Dont use that ti-200 anymore, so dont care, haha :D

I have one sitting in front of me and I'm pretty sure it's 6ft. I'm off to class right now but you can PM me later and have me check.

Regarding extending:

As long as you put powered repeaters every once in a while down a strand of DVI, it can go forever, in theory. It's digital so the signal is really easy to clean up -- you just need a device that will do that (has to be powered).

im probably going to buy the 2m/6ft extension....should be good enough for what i need to do

I have an ATI 9600 Pro and have no problems whatsoever via DVI and VGA. I am using the DVI cable provided by Dell.

Without buying anything extra? No.

What don't you like about the stand though? It looks sharp, allows the display to swivel 90 degrees in either direction (providing easy access to the plugs), can tilt the monitor a few degrees horizontally, and can raise/lower the panel about 8 inches.
