I would go with 2560x1440 IPS > 120hz. But that's only because I have to be able to FULLY max out a game with vsync on so that there's absolutely no screen tearing. If you like the higher refresh rate....stick with the 120. I tried out a 120hz monitor for a while and honestly I enjoyed a constant vsynced 60FPS much more. You also have to think about your ability to drive current and future games at a consistently high FPS....so yeah, i'd go the 60hz/higher res route for sure. Visual fidelity > unnecessary refresh rate increase....imo.

What? HDMI 1.3 has more bandwidth than dual link DVI, it should work fine.

I would be happy to be proven wrong, but I have never found such an HDMI to Dual link DVI that could handle anything over 1080p natively.

I believe I once read somewhere it is technically impossible for an HDMI to DVI cable to pass anything greater than 1080p.

Natively it can't. But I just read around people configuring their gfx driver to force the higher resolution through the hdmi. This was tested on the Dell Ultrasharp 27inch so I don't know how this fairs. If I could get hdmi from my laptop to work on this monitor, I will be picking it up.

As long as the video card has a dual-link output, all you have to do is add a custom resolution in the control panel. AFAIK, this works on Nvidia cards.. not sure about AMD tongue.gif

Yup., the exact link I saw. I have the 9650M gt. And can't find if it supports it for some reason redface.gif

Edit: NVM, nvidia's site says it can biggrin.gif

Happy to be proven wrong.

That's pretty awesome and wish I saw that a year ago when was trying to setup my m1530 to run my 30" LCD via HDMI.

Curious to see if it can push 2560x1600 (30"). One day when I'm bored, I'll give it a shot. Still have my trusty m1530 with an 8600gt lying around.

Based on nvidia's specs, you can.

You know I just realized - the guy that got the u2711 to work used native HDMI to HDMI.

I wonder if it would work with HDMI to dual link DVI. I swear I read somewhere the conversion makes it impossible for it pass resolutions greater than 1080p. I, of course, could be completely wrong.
