Quick question on monitor conection
Hi, I am going to get a new computer and monitor shortly but i want to keep my old PC for certain things can i connect them both to a Dell U2713HM Monitor.
The Dell UltraSharp OSD menu system is not too obstructive to switching manually between input ports on the monitor.
I have a 24" and 22" Dell Ultrashrp monitor I've used for switching between my laptop and my desktop PC. Desktop connected to DVI-D and laptop via Analog VGA.
The big question is whether or not your OLD PC has a video card capable of connecting to the U2713HM at its' high bandwidth resolution of 2560x1440. You need a Dual Link DVI-D or a Displayport. An HDMI port, even though technically it is capable of high bandwidth resolutions, may be restricted to 1920x1080/1200.
