Hi all

I recently purchased an MSI Z87-G45 for a new build. (First time builder, long time forum trawler). However I've been looking into Korean Monitors as there are a lot of positive things on the internet about them. Specifically im looking at the Qnix 2710 Evolution 2.

My issue is, the motherboard arrived yesterday and after flicking through the spec manual, i saw that the motherboard will only support 1900x1200 resolution with a DVI-D cable but up to 1600p with an HDMI. I know it seems obvious that the board cant play 1440p with DVI-D but the thing that confused me is that although the HDMI section lists all resolutions up to 1600p it DOES NOT list 1440p. This is making me think that it may have been missed off the list.....and hopefully off the DVI-D list.....heres hoping...

Would anybody who either has had the same issue as me, or has a Z87-G45 and a 1440p monitor working let me know if al is fine or if i should look to return the Motherboard. If the latter is necessary, any motherboard suggestions (gaming orientated) for one that will work with 1440p on DVI-D?

EDIT - Forgot to mention, it also say 60HZ on all resolutions....is this set in stone? I find it hard to believe but....well, it says it

Another EDIT - Sorry forgot to mention the Qnix monitor only has DVI-D support

- 1 x VGA port, supporting a maximum resolution of 1920x1200 @60Hz, 24bpp
- 1 x DVI-D port, supporting a maximum resolution of 1920x1200 @60Hz, 24bpp
- 1 x HDMI port, supporting a maximum resolution of 4096x2160 @24Hz, 24bpp/ 2560x1600@60Hz, 24bpp/ 1920x1080@60Hz, 36bpp

Translation:
- 1 x VGA port, supporting a maximum resolution of 1920x1200 @60Hz, 16,777,216 color variations
- 1 x DVI-D port, supporting a maximum resolution of 1920x1200 @60Hz, 16,777,216 color variations
- 1 x HDMI port, supporting a maximum resolution of 4096x2160 @24Hz, 16,777,216 color variations/ 2560x1600@60Hz, 16,777,216 color variations / 1920x1080@60Hz, 68.71 billion color variations
In simple you can run 1440P in 24bit (16,777,216 color variations) but not 36bit (68.71 billion color variations).

As for you monitor, it only supports 8Bit so there is no loss. As for the refresh rate it goes up to 60Hz.

But through HDMI and not through DVI-D?
