    Connectors and Resolutions

    Hi all, just got myself a BENQ G2410HD screen and I just had a couple of questions. I knew before I bought it that it only came with a VGA cable. Would I be correct in assuming that you can't display 1920 x 1080 via VGA?

    Next, what DVI cable do I need to fit into a socket like this one:

    All the DVI cables I have at the moment have 4 pins around the single horizontal pin, which means they wont fit... I realise this is probably an uber noob question but any help is appreciated!!

    Re: Connectors and Resolutions

    Well the highest resolution I can get through the VGA is 1600 x 1200. My graphics card is an Nvidia Geforce 8800GT OC 2 BFG which is capable of 1920 x 1080 resolution, as is the screen. So provided I can get a dvi dual to dvi cable hopefully I can achieve the max resolution I'm looking for?

    thats strange as my old mans 1920x1200 monitors running from VGA on an aged nvidia 5600 card.

    maybe it needs new drivers,

    Maybe your monitor only supports a certain resolution over VGA, even though VGA may support a higher one - check the manual. The 1080p Regza downstairs only allows 1360*768 over VGA, opposed to (obviously?) 1920*1080 over DVI/HDMI.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Re: Connectors and Resolutions

    Well most of the reviews say to get a DVI cable straight away so I think that must be right...

    So would this be a suitable cable:

    thats a DVI-D cable - one of these - http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/2m-DV...Signal-Quality


    as for monitor drivers, i cant see any for your model on the BenQ website. even checked the global and usa sections, only piece to download was the usa limited warranty pdf.

    website i checked was http://benq.co.uk/support/downloads/...?productline=5


    edit: re your post above - that will work
