I was looking at one of these high-res monitors in 27" and realized not many video cards can handle this resolution.  The plan was to pair this monitor with one of the Dell XPS 8500 deals (i7, ~$700).

It would be rare for a video card, even a low-end one, made within the last few years to not support 2560x1440. I'm using an older low-end GeForce 8400GS with mine via DVI (using a dual-link cable, of course), and my low-end Acer Netbook has no problems with that resolution via HDMI.
