    So is a 7 year old X58 system obsolete. Lets get some numbers and see.

    Still running 1366 in both my main desktops. i7 970 Hex core in my main PC at home and the 950 in my LAN PC. Also my main VMWare server runs a pair of 1366 Xeons. 7 years old and still going strong. Scary as i have not logged in here for a long time and my system specs are still mostly valid.

    2560x1440 IPS 27" LED Monitor on the Cheap!

    I think it depends if you have scaler in the screen or not. If the screen has HDMI/VGA ect then i think it will work but i can't be sure as i don't have one with those inputs. When i tried with mine (only has the DVI) it would not work with a mainboard that only had single link DVI.

    It's a Controller Card out of a old IBM DS6800 Fiber channel SAN. Unfortunately the CF card that holds the firmware is dead so it does not work anymore.

    I don't know what seller you got yours from but when mine was missing the power adapter the seller had a new one sent out in less then 24hours and arrived in 3 working days Your situation is a little different as you have a faulty one so i don't know if they will expect it to be sent back
