Adapters DVI-D to HDMI

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, i am thingking of buying this screen. But, it doesnt have a DVI slot, so i was thinking i could get one of these:

Adapter: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000GE9XRQ/ref=asc_df_B000GE9XRQ7663177?smid=AZ0KELJLQ2E&tag=googlecouk06-21&linkCode=asn&creative=22218&creativeASIN=B000GE9XRQ

Monitor: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-LS27A750DS-EN-Widescreen-Monitor/dp/B004UWZ68A/ref=lh_ni_t

TO connect my EVGA GTX 580 Superclocked to. Would i still be able to get 120hz on this monitor?

[side question(optional), would this monitor be good for a dual screen/triple monitor gaming set-up?]

Thanks in advance!

No, need to be on straight dvi or go DP. The Sammy 750 is a superb screen.

I was like huh? But then I realized it's been that long since I used an Nvidia card and remembered that 580s don't come with DP ports.

OP, this is the wrong monitor for you. This screen is better suited to a HD3D, not 3D Surround.

Okay, thanks. I guess il go back on the hunt for monitors then frown.gif. Happen to know any 120hz 24inch monitors with a thin bezel?

Thanks for all your help guys! Saved me from making a mistake!
