I have just purchased this Dell U2711 Monitor and was wondering which would be the best way to connect the together. On my ASUS I have both HDMI and Mini DisplayPort connections, and the Dell U2711 comes with all sorts of ports, mainly two DVI, one HDMI and a DisplayPort.
Since I want to achieve the best resolution possible, in this case something like 2560 x 1440, I wonder which would be the best cable to plug them both. I have heard (or read) thaat HDMI does not support such high resolution, but I'm not sure if our HDMI does. Dell recommend using the DVI port and I have even read some people using the two DVI ports the Dell has connecting them with a split cable to the Mini DisplayPort connection on our G75VW.
What do you recommed?
By the way, if you are wondering why I went for the Del U2711 and not other monitors available, it was just that I could not afford anything more expensive and apart from that, the fact that this Dell monitor as far as I can tell has not had a single negative writeup considering the price differences. I will use it mostly for Photoshop CS6 and of course the odd game here and there... 😄
