27" 2560x1440: DVI + HDMI?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to pick up two 27" monitors for a dual setup, and would love to get the same ones. (The OCD wouldn't allow me to use different monitors.) I have one dual DVI, and 1 VGA on my graphics card. I'm looking for 2560x1440 as the title says.

I know some of the crossfire models have both, and the microcenter auria is also an option.

Is the yamasaki q271 (Link) the best value for meeting these specifications? I'd love to get in on the QNix, but the only dual-DVI takes it off the table for a dual monitor setup for me.

Thanks for the help.

Unless it specifically says so, monitors usually don't take more then 1920x1200 (would be 1920x1080) over the HDMI connector. I'm not sure about VGA and 2560x1440.

What GPU do you have?

Best guess based on previous posts is a 7870.

This man is correct. I'm not trying to game on both monitors obviously, and am okay with taking a bit of a fps hit. But apparently (as another poster told me,) it's fairly common for AMD to go with just the one dual-DVI? I've never delved into double monitors, so it's never mattered before.

*edit: Would it be worth trading for a GTX 660TI? That's about the top-end of my budget on a new card. My build is in a Bitfenix Prodigy, and it's highly unlikely I could fit a second card.
