2560 x 1440 and other specs (build help)
glasswave wrote:a 30" 16x10 is just a tad bigger than a 27" 16x9. Plus the lower pixel pitch is easier to read. $1500 vs $900 can be a tough pill to swallow for just a few more pixels though.
MonoPrice has 30" monitors for $700 and $800, and a 27" for under $400. I got my 27" at MicroCenter for $340 (regularly $400). Of course none of those are from mainstream brands, but they are all IPS and high resolution.
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's mainly for photoshop, some video editing.
When I price my own build, it comes out to much more than Dell's XPS 8500. Where are they cutting corners?
Also, does an SSD drive have a role in this machine?
All decent video cards made within the last few years should be able to handle it.
SSD would be good as your O/S boot drive.
