post #41 of 46
Thread Starter 
as far as apple goes, take of the brand sticker and sell it to me at half price LOL thats all you are paying for.

i get what you mean by the high res... this monitor is super high res and it kicks my gtx 560 Ti's butt big time. im returning it and grabbing a 580.

however, this problem is kind of solved cuz this monitor is sweeeeeeet.

I saw someone talking about certain cables for that high res, can someone elaborate on that more. If i buy a 27" monitor will that cable come with it?

What do you mean?

Monitors almost always come with cables. Diagonal has no impact on what cable you need. It is resolution.

If you're wanting to use DVI with a panel LARGER than 1920x1200@60Hz, you'll need a dual-link interface on both gpu/cable/monitor. Some ATI GPUs (6000 series for example) have 2 DVI connections, 1 is single-link and the other is dual-link.

Not really, I don't really like Apple but you shouldn't smear them because of misconceptions.

The Apple Cinema Display is $1000, which happens to have the same panel as the Dell U2711

Mac Pro's and the white macbook are overpriced, but the other stuff is fairly priced for what you get.


And enjoy that monitor, I really want something of that size but it is hard to justify on my student budget.

The 2560x1440 and 2560x1600 rez monitors come with the dual link DVI cable that is needed to run that resolution.

One big one is always better than 3 smaller monitors. Not only will you not have to deal with bezels but you will have better driver support for games.
