Getting an EVGA GeForce 250 GTS, 1GB, as part of new system.

Specs are here: http://www.evga.com/products/pdf/01G-P3-1158.pdf

What is the largest size LCD that this video card can support for Photoshop, DVDs, BluRay?




The card has dual DVI-I and HDTV-7 interface. On EVGA's site, however, I read that this particular card does not "support DVI to HDMI adaptor." What are the ramifications of this?




Thank you in advance.

click specifications
max digital reslolution 2560x1600
max VGA resolution 2048x1536

The size of the monitor can be any where from 2" to 100" it dose not matter.

As to why the card is not able to support a DVI to HDMI adapter I do not know. This means you cannot use a DVI to HDMI adapter to plug into a monitor that uses HDMI.

Thank you. I understood that I couldn't use that kind of adapter. My phrasing was lousy. I currently do not have an LCD or high definition capable television. I plan to purchase one altho I haven't researched it at all and so am not knowledgeable about it. Just was wondering whether this lack of support meant that I couldn't run high definition from this computer to a tv.

if the HDTV has VGA (most do), then you could still connect the card to it.
