I finished my new build (in my sig) and I'm having an annoying problem with an adapter to one of my monitors. I'm running a triple screen setup and they are a Korean X-Star DP2710 LED 2560X1440 resolution. The new cards (running 2 cards) only have a single DVI-I and a few display ports, the monitors only have DVI-I so I had to buy an an adapter to connect to one of the display ports. Now I'm getting a weird screen flicker with lines running across the screen. If I unplug the display port adapter from the card and plug it back in it will be okay for a while but will return. I bought two of these adapters by mistake, I tried both both of them with the same results. In hindsight, I should have just bought a DVI-I to display port cable. Has anyone seen this happen with these adapters?
