I'd like to find a 24" to 27" LED/LCD monitor that can put out 1920x1200 or possibly ~2560x1440 and at greater than 60hz (75+), if there is such a thing.
I plan to us an MSI 6950 2gb - but may upgrade to a 7870 2gb - so either will have multiple Display ports and DVI.
I *might* use two rotated 23" displays for a 3-display Eyefinity - so I'm guessing either GFX *might* be powerful enough for 3620x1200.
But because I've read that either DVI or HDMI v1.0 max out at 1920x1080 res (although I could have sworn I've seen the neighborhoold of ~2140x1200 or so) - I'm wondering if I'd *need* to find a monitor with Display or HDMI v1.2+
What's your budget? What do you want to use the monitor for (gaming/image editing/web browsing/etc)? What type of panel do you want? How important is 1440p resolution to you?
The monitor world is a bit of a mess right now and it's hard to figure out what monitor will be best for you... if you don't really care about making the resolution jump up to 1440/1600p then you have a TON of options.. there are tons of 120 Hz 1920x1080/1200 monitors to choose from.
If you want to make the jump up to 1440/1600p, then there are far fewer options and the prices skyrocket quickly. And if you want >60 Hz at that point, your only option is to get one of those "overclockable" panels and they are DVI only:
Thanks for the replies...
I already have a 2gb 6950, and several 1440x900 monitors with DVI - so I figured I'd use those for side-monitors.
I'd probably be OK with 1920x1200 @ 75hz, but could consider a something x 1440 in consideration that it may last 4+ years - so I might go upwards of $500-600ish. IF I choose to upgrade the GPU, that's independent.
