Intel i3-2100 work with 1920x1080 monitor?

Hello, any issues with connecting a 1920x1080 monitor to a computer with an i3-2100 and Graphics Media Accelerator HD?

This would not be used for gaming.

  1. no there should be no issues as long you use a DVI or HDMI cable to connect it, older VGA cables don't support 1080p
  2. The computer appears to have an HDMI out and the monitor has a DVI input. I shouldn't have any problems if I get an appropriate cable, should I?
  3. No, an hdmi -dvi cable will work fine.

    VGA supports greater than 1080p resolutions such as 2048x1536 just fine and I've used 1080p displays on VGA myself. Maybe some very old cables or whatever don't support it themselves, but VGA has supported it for years.
  5. Hmm. I wonder if I should splurge on a HDMI-DVI cable or just hope a VGA will work

    Any advantage to HDMI-DVI in this case?
  6. Well, HDMI has built-in audio support for monitors that have speakers. HDMI/DVI-D both also use digital signaling instead of analogue signaling like VGA uses. That's not necessarily an advantage, but it's theoretically a small advantage. I suggest using HDMI or DVI-D, but that's not to say that VGA is inherently much worse in any way. There's no more reason that VGA wouldn't work than there is that HDMI or DVI-D wouldn't work for you as far as I'm aware.

    It sure does. Running 1920 x 1200 fine over VGA.

    Good point about HDMI audio. Some AMD cards used to pass audio over DVI with the right adapter.
  8. I just realized I could test VGA with the monitor and an existing computer. It seems to work fine.

    Since the integrated graphics on the i3-2100 can drive 1920x1080 according to the replies, all is well

    Thanks!
