Has anyone ever used an external USB video card?
I am talking about devices like the eVGA UV16. http://www.evga.com/uvplus/
I am thinking to use two of them for my B777 CDU from FDS connected to the SimAv software. The computer has power enough, but I am not sure if this would be a good idea or even would work at all.

Suggestions are very welcome!

Hi, i tried a couple years ago a usb video card and didn´t work, it frozen for video acceleration problems, it was a manhattan one but i don´t remember the model.

It worked for regular pc apps like word, excel etc.

Regards.

You cannot add another video card? No more slots in the motherboard?

All,

Thanks for your suggestions.
I found out that a USB Video card will not for sure. Reason indeed is the missing hardware acceleration, as Juan was writing.
I have got myself a dual-head card, everything is ok now.
(well...... please check my other post in the FDS Interface Products forum http://www.flightdecksolutions.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=28416#28416)
