Any potential issues with BenQ XL2420T at 144 Hz in a dual monitor setup with Dell 2209WA?

Hi,

I am considering to buy the updated BenQ XL2420T with 144 Hz (I believe it's called XL2420TE in US), but I would like to ask here if there could be any kind of problems using this BenQ monitor as my primary monitor at 144 Hz along with my older 22" Dell 2209WA as secondary monitor running at 60 Hz (or is it 75 Hz, I'm not sure actually)?

My graphics card is a Gigabyte GeForce 460 if that matters smile.gif

I hope you can help me - it is very important for me that this will work properly as I need to use the Dell for work (graphics) stuff since the new BenQ is probably not ideal for this due to the TN panel.

Thanks in advance smile.gif

There are no issues with running differing resolutions and refresh rates. Everything works.

I run my GTX 460 with a 120Hz BenQ (XL2420T) and a 120Hz 1440p Qnix (QX2710).

In the past I have run my 120Hz BenQ with a 60Hz Dell monitor, and before that two 60Hz Dell monitors.

Thank you - that sounds good smile.gif

I do currently have 2 60 hz monitors which work just fine, I was more worried if mixing refresh rate would be a problem.

It does make me a bit in doubt though that I can read about ppl having problems with either differing resolution (my dell is 1680*1050) or refresh rates - but maybe drivers etc. have improved so it isn't a problem anymore?
