Geforce 8800 GT with 27-inch monitor at 2560x1440; anyone actually tried it?
My old 24" 1920x1200 monitor (16:10) went on the fritz, so now I'm shopping for a new one, but have an itch to move up to on of the higher rez 27-inch monitors in 2560x1440.
I am not a gamer, so am more interested in having multiple work files open, both spreadsheet and Photoshop, etc. I am using the Nvidia 8800 GT 512mb, and would like to continue using it if possible. It has dual-link DVI-D outputs, and according to the Nvidia spec sheet, the 8800 GT can technically handle resolutions up to 2560x1600.
Has anyone ever actually used the 8800 GT hooked up to a 27-inch monitor at 2560x1440? Since I'm not using it for games, but rather work, I am wondering if I can take Nvidia's specs as accurate and assume that this should work? Curious though for first-hand experiences with the 8800 GT at 2560x1440. Thanks.
