I have a Zotac Nvidia Geforce fx5200 256mb PCI graphics card - with two outputs. I currently run 2x 1024x768 monitors - and everything works fine.
I wanted to upgrade to two 19inch widescreen monitors, with a resolution of 1440x900 (Samsung (syncmaster) SM931bw) and wanted to make sure that they would be compatible with my video card. (They are priced at around £160)
When looking at the specs of the video card, it states - " Max Resolution (external) 2048 x 1536". So could I run 2x 1440 x 900? What does it mean by 'external'?
Problem is, I have received two different answers - some say that 2x 1440x900 would be a total resolution of 2880x900, and so it wouldn't be compatible. But some say that "2048 x 1536" is the max resolution for each monitor output, so it should work fine.
What would you say - will it let me or won't it? I'd really like to know before I buy them; I don't want to spend £300 on two monitors that won't even work.
