Hi Sanjaya,

 

And which country might that be?

 

1) Multi-channel Graphics card

 

WATCHOUT will ONLY work with ONE graphics card with up to 6 outputs.

http://dataton.com/forum/topic/93-wo5-multi-output/

Currently there are no NVidia card that does this, only AMD.

 

Preferably HD7970:

http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/AMD_Series/HD7970DC23GD5/

http://www.msi.com/product/vga/R7970-Lightning.html

Please remember to use ACTIVE DisplayPort/MiniDisplayPort-->to-->DVI-adapters

 

2) Processor/Motherboard

 

"Core i7 - 3820, intel mainboard INTEL DZ77BH-55K"

 

These 2 will not match.

 

- Core i7-3820 needs a X79/LGA2011-based mainboard, like DX79SI/DX79TO or DX79SR

- INTEL DZ77BH-55K is a Z77/LGA1155-based mainboard, needs a Core i7-3770 processor or less

 

You can look here for more info/examples on configurations:

Hope this helps,

Yes, but you will need an ACTIVE MiniDisplayPort-->VGA-adapter, not a DisplayPort-->VGA-adapter.

 

Like this:
