I'm trying to figure out if I can run two monitors at 2560x1440 resolution. The video card (MSI R7870) has one HDMI 1.4a port and one DVI port. I can't seem to get a straight answer as to whether the HDMI 1.4a port can support 1440p. The monitors in question are the X-Star DP2710.
The video card also has two Mini DisplayPorts, but to be honest I've never used them. Are these an option? And if so, what adapter might I need?
If I can run the monitors at 1440p, will a regular HDMI-to-DVI cable work (I'm using one currently), will I need a specific cable, a specific adapter, or otherwise?
HDMI 1.4a CAN support that high of a res, but only at a 30Hz refresh rate, after creating a custom resolution (it defaults to 1080p). I hope you won't be gaming with that 7870 accross two 1440p monitors.
I would only game on a single monitor, so presumably the one connected to the Dual Link DVI cable. The monitor itself comes with one Dual Link DVI cable. I'm just curious what I would specifically need to connect the second monitor once my single DVI port on the video card is in use.
