Who Wants A Dual Monitor Video Card?

PowerColor X1550

In order to run dual monitors, you need a video card that supports it. Therefore, I have decided to give one away.

The ATi Radeon-based X1550 from PowerColor is a new Windows Vista ready graphics card that packs in a hefty 512MB of on-board memory as well as dual DVI outputs, which will allow you to run two LCD monitors at the same time.

You get the X1550 graphics card, an installation CD with software and drivers, a red DVI to VGA adapter (in case you’re still running a CRT), an S-Video to composite video cable, and an installation guide in case you don’t know how to install a graphics card.

Dual DVI Outputs

PowerColor X1550

As stated above, the PowerColor X1550 is equipped with two DVI outputs. This means that you can run two monitors with full digital signals from this card, unlike other entry-level units that may only offer one DVI output and one (analog) VGA output.

To enter the contest for a chance to win this dual head video card, just reply to this post. I’ll make a draw from all the commentators this Friday and that person will win the card. You only need to comment once to enter. You can comment more than once but it will still get you only one entry.

Good luck.

        6. Krillz says:

          niice πŸ˜€
          A new computer would so rock, doing pretty much everything from my laptop right now, the old workstation had to be turned into a server. But I think all the vms is starting to kill it slowly πŸ™

  13. Kirg says:

    Perfect linkbait, evil John! 😈

    1. John Chow says:

      How can this be perfect linkbait when I don’t require a link? LOL

      1. Hawaii SEO says:

        Since you mentioned it… Why not ask for a link? ❓

        1. John Chow says:

          I wanted to allow readers who don’t have a blogs a chance to enter.

          1. Al Davies says:

            I don’t think that it’ll fit in any of my laptops 😎 but hey… I can always have my own contest on my blog for it if I win it right?

      2. That’s exactly what I was thinking…lol

      3. Kenny says:

        I was surprised there wasn’t a requirement to link to this post actually :mrgreen:

      4. Marc says:

        Maybe you should have specified that in your post about linkbaiting πŸ™‚

  14. Kenny says:

    I’m planning on building a new computer for web surfing, this video card would be perfect :mrgreen:

    I could always use a new card :mrgreen: Plus, it’s Vista ready!

    I’m from Quebec City, Canada so it’s not far but what about the others. Japan, England … Can they enter?

    Don’t want the shipping and duties to be the price of the card πŸ˜‰

  16. Tyler Ingram says:

    I’m replying!

    I could always use a new video card!

    1. I bet even those who don’t actually need one think so, too!

  17. Rod says:

    And here’s my entry. Thanks, John.

  18. Matthew says:

    Thats a cool prize! I guess good luck to all commentators πŸ™‚

  19. I wouldn’t mine winning it.

  39. JoseNet says:

    I recently droped about $1500 In a new computer from Newegg, but I only have one 22 inch Monitor,

    However if I win this card, I’ll get another monitor just because I’ll be able to run them both at the same time :), which I think it will be pretty cool since I’ve never had that kind of set up.

  40. Justin Chelf says:

    Sounds great πŸ‘Ώ I’m in!

  41. Hey, a “no strings attached” contest. You have really hit it big time now. Throw my name in the hat too!

  42. Rosie says:

    Hi John!

  43. Tomas says:

    Hey, John,

    where is a catch? where did you put your evil side? πŸ™‚ shouldn’t you as something more, not just a simple comment?

    you know, you could really make a difference in world with thinking a bit more before giving something out. make people to try some new things, to do good jobs.

    and let’s say, only then… with a comment and a good job, a reader of your blog could enter in contest. i do not mean to scare or diminish the number of attendants, however there is an opportunity to make a difference.

    1. John Chow says:

      No catch. I just felt like giving away a video card today. 😈

      1. Mehdi says:

        Getting rid of your stock? πŸ™‚

      2. Just out of curiousity, what’s the retail on this puppy πŸ™‚

        1. John Chow says:

          I don’t know. I didn’t pay for it.

  44. Derek says:

    Wow this is a pretty good way to get traffic moving (not like you need to or anything).

  45. Hmm what to say.
    Count me in for the draw but I need to say something else that is witty and memorable.

    Uhmm, I think I failed.

  46. There must be some sort of incentive for you…? I mean, you don’t even require a linkback! It’s a great thing you’re doing man, thanks! πŸ™‚

    Does anyone know if the card is compatible with a Mac Pro or not?

    – Thanks, Sahil.

    1. John Chow says:

      It works with any computer that has PCI-E.

      1. Rick Yuen says:

        I guess I will need a mobo w/ PCI-E when I win the video card. 😈

      2. blogdinero says:

        ughhh, this post need a parse choice, it seems every body wants the card

      3. good to know, now i really hope i’d win

  48. Tomas says:

    i wonder, did my comment was published, or not.

  49. Audi says:

    Well I haven’t been commenting for a long time. I believe its the time to comment πŸ™‚

    A comment is all you need to win, no problem.

  58. James says:

  80. Brandon Wood says:

    Count me in John – I’ve been running dual monitors at work for a while now, and I would love to have the same setup at home.

  81. Chris says:

    I’d love to enter as well. That’s awesome that you’re giving this away.


  82. D&D Nerd.com says:

    Hmm… I suppose I’ll enter this one as well, even though I’m more of an nVidia fan. I would normally prefer a GeForce 8800 GTX, or even an Ultra.

    However, since you’re giving the ATI away for free, I may as well have a stab at it. At least this is something to get me to comment for a change, rather than the usual lurking I do.

    Besides, this could be handy with an overhead projector setup. πŸ˜‰

  83. Sara says:

    I have a dual monitor card and work and it’s the coolest. The single monitor at home always drives me nuts. This is a great prize, John.


  84. Izzatz says:

    oh poor me.. i didnt know that the requirement to run a dual monitor must have a specific vga card..

    im just plannin to buy a new lcd monitor n make it a dual monitor with the old one :mrgreen:

  85. Mark says:

    Ship to australia? πŸ˜€

  86. Webmastern says:

    Nice contest John. If I win I will have a contest on my blog, and guess what the prize will be…

  87. Sabrina says:

    That would be so cool, I want it !!! I even have a monitor on standby ready and waiting!

    Draw me, draw me!!!! πŸ™‚ :mrgreen:

  90. egon says:

    Count me in!

    There was an AdSense ad in this post and it just had a picture of an HDMI repeater, and I was wondering what that had to do with the card. Was he giving it away too? Then I relized it was the ad. I’m dumb. haha.

  91. Dejan says:

    I feel lucky :mrgreen:

  92. I’m not only commenting here, I also wrote a blog post asking my readers to comment here. Does this count as 2 entries? πŸ™‚

  93. It’s a nice video card.

    It seems to me it is possible also to connect the third video output device using TV-OUT output.

  94. egon says:

    @Ehsan: How could you possibly not be a fan of dual monitors? Have you used them long enough to get used to them?

  95. Count Me in! Thanks John for always adding a special touch to your blog.

    1. Gregg says:

      Ahhh… finally found a spot where I can manage to comment. You’re going to have to tell us how many people you entered into the draw in the end.

    Count me in John! A great blog that also gives stuff away, always a winner!

  97. Wow more comments on this one than any other on the blog so far.
    That’s his evil plan this time. 😈

  98. ricdes says:

  100. Dax Desai says:

  101. Generous prize John! No link needed?

    Count me in!


    1. Count me in as well!

  102. GOLD says:

    Nice offer John. πŸ˜†

    Some old LCD’s have only VGA Input… 😯

    1. Correct. That’s my case.

      1. Moulinneuf says:

        Get a monitor adaptor ( 10$ ) or New LCD πŸ˜‰



        1. Just got one for $7 CAD. Tax included.
          My video card’s DVI output does not have those 4 holes on the right. So the adaptor does not fit. I need the one from John.


          1. Moulinneuf says:

            I should have read John article more closely :

            “a red DVI to VGA adapter (in case you’re still running a CRT)”

            Should have known the man always give the best and offer more πŸ˜‰

            ATI PowerColor DVI to VGA Adapter I think its called.


  103. Martin says:

    Yet another great idea, duel monitors rock. Count me in.

  104. Jon Lee says:

    I’m in for this! Hope I win, thanks John Chow πŸ˜€

  105. Champion of Awesomeness says:

    Ooh. i just bought a second monitor..same as the one you’ve got. I think i’ll set the desktop background to be the same as yours too. 😯

  106. That’s an incredibly generous offer John, now if only you’d include the dual 19 inch widescreen TFT’s to go with it… πŸ˜‰

  107. santosh p says:

    JOHN, you teach people to be evil.. write my name in all the draw lists.. please please please PICK ME πŸ™‚

  109. Nate W. says:

    1. I wouldn’t be surprised if you won again, Nate. 😈

      1. Meethere says:

    Are you including the wallpaper from your other post? πŸ˜‰

    1. Jeff says:

      A contest….Put me in there please!!

  117. Steve says:

    Don’t think it’ll fit in my lap top, or my pda, I’ll give this one a miss. Thanks

    PS. Let me know when you finally include me in your reviewme batch, I reviewed you last month, maybe the post is slow… πŸ˜•

    1. I think John requires that a blog be up for 3 months before he posts in ReviewMe.

      1. Steve says:

        Thats not what I’ve understood. It was payperpost that requires a minimum 90 old blog, but John is quite happy with younger ones.

        Is that so John? and if so, when do I get on the list?

        1. Steve says:

          I guess I keep blowing the same trumpet, but my Dad once said to me. “If you want something, then ask for it”

          You don’t always get what you want, but don’t let “not getting what you want” be for not asking.

  118. Ricco says:

    Cool! I’m in!

  280. Jeff says:

    I’ve just today realized that I don’t comment here nearly enough – though I read this site almost daily! I guess it’s the lazy me not clicking out of the feed reader. I suppose today would be a good day to comment. Well, that and – who doesn’t want a free video card? Sign me up for certain!

    The killer of it all is that nearly 400 other people have the same desire. Infact, did WP reach a limit? FF wouldn’t load all of the comments for me, and it left me no way in which to post a new comment thread. I had to switch to IE just to write this.

    I never win a thing, but here goes another try!

  281. Jeff says:

    I should clarify – did WP reach a limit together with mybloglog and FF. I noticed that on this post mybloglog is pounded harshly before WP stops loading the page in FF.

    That’s all.

  282. Ryan Dlugosz says:

    Hm… Firefox crapped out after a few hundred comments – had to switch to IE! πŸ˜•
