Nintendo Switch review: Hands-on with the intuitive modular console and its disappointing games…
I would like to connect my 42" 1080 LCD - which has a resolution of 1920x1080 - to my Dell computer. I have an HDMI to DVI converter so it does not matter what type of digital signal is put out by the pc.
The current card is fine with the monitor - a single Dvi connection with a max output of at 1280x1080.
Am I looking to buy a graphics card which has (a) 2x Dvi outputs (b) 1x dvi and 1x HDMI output (c) and extra graphics card to fill the spare slot which has either an HDMI or DVI out?
I do not really play games - it will be used mainly to clone the pc output onto the big screen for video editing. Budget is below £100, preferably nearer £50 as I plan to upgrade the PC in the new year.
Any help here would be appreciated.
I just asked about DX10 as "its the future". And it all depends what you mean by recent and most. :)
Oh and i simply get gound the HDMI port issue by using a DVI to HDMI cable, no loss in quality.... I hope.
Well just found one that has DX10 for £26.99 inc VAT (excl del) - ASUS 2400PRO 256MB DDR2 DVI VGA HDCP HDTV out Silent PCI-E Graphics Card. G
Link for above: click here. G
Are you looking for DirectX 10?
If not go for the 7600GS with HDMI output- Dont know how much they go for these days but there definetly under £100
7600GS HDMI ^^
7600GS Specs :
Dual Link DVI - Supporting digital output up to 2560x1600
GeForce 7600 GS
HDTV, DVI, HDMI
HDCP Ready , RoHS , SLI ready , Vista , HDTV ready
If you are looking for DX10 in the extra slot you could fill it with the BFG Geforce 8500GT. Costing around £5 these are perfect as a secondary graphics card and boast HD Playback. It comes with one DVI port and one VGA, also including an HD-TV out. ( Sli Ready as well)
If your quick overclockers is doing the BFG for £47 inc vat this week! click here
07 patty -I have looked at the spec for the 8500, from the website you referred me to -
Is it built specifically for vista?
Will it work for me, with XP MCE?
And it says "Dual dual-link DVI supports two 2560 x 1600 resolution displays" - but the pic shows only 1 dvi output...
As a piece of general advice, relating to my first post - will it be easy to install another graphics card and run 2 different resolutions from the same pc? My current card is a geforce 6800, 256MB... I have heard there can be compatibility issues with installing two cards. When using 2, is one made primary or do they work in tandem?
Or am I better off getting one card with 2 dvi outs (and again, will it support 2 output resolutions)... Or is it possible to have dvioutput supporting two different resolutions via a splitter?
Thanks for everyones help so far. I had no idea how complicated this was to become
Also - have looked at reviews for the 7600GS with HDMI output - which come out as saying that the card gets very hot and that HD output quality via hdmi is not so great... Are there any other alternatives?
Just use a DVI to HDMI cable why is it so important to have HDMI?
