its basically down to bandwidth to take it to dvi as an example a single link dvi cable could never do 75hz 1920z1200 but a dual link can. but a gpu drvier will tend to limit the pixel clock rate so the card wont use the needed bandwidth.. but then you can also patch the pixel clock and force te driver to allow the bandwidth ...

im a bit drunk but that shouldbe the info you need to figure it out. cant explain better right now

so...
having returned my monitor to Ebuyer which was under warranty,i was told they would replace it this week if it was faulty.
instead received an email saying i would be getting a refund due to the monitor being faulty. not a replacement.

and now i need to look for a new bloody monitor.which im finding quite stressful.

ideally i want a 144hz 1440p one again.
i cant go back to 60hz 1080p.

budget wise about 300-350£ or there about really.

this is the new version of what i had which is now vesa mountable.
its not a bad monitor be all means.but i suppose you get what you pay for.

and i am loving it, i came from a dell UltraSharp and am really fussy with monitors and the price is really reaaaaally good. Also i know how you feel with monitor stress. It's a nightmare reall,y since you spend all your pc time staring at it, you really notice imperfections.
