Video card on non-PCIe system question

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Ticketwatcher, Nov 4, 2008.

  1. This question does not pertain to a multi-monitor system.

    I am looking to get an older non-PCIe system to drive a monitor digitally with a resolution of 1920X1200.

    This system has maxed out memory at 2gb and an upgraded PSU.

    I am looking at a Quadro FX 1000 Agp card.

    The specs say that it will drive one monitor at 3800X2400 over dual link DVI.

    The monitor I have is not dual link DVI but single link.

    I thought I read somewhere that if a card will do 3800X2400 over dual link DVI, it would drive at 1920X1200 over single link DVI.

    I have searched and searched and I unable to confirm that dual link to single link translation.

    Here is the spec from the manufacturer's documentation.

    Dual DVI output - Drives two independent digital displays at 1600x1200, or one at 3840x2400

    Can anyone confirm that dual link DVI to single link DVI translation?
