Default Re: Which NVIDIA Graphics Cards can display 2048x2048 ?

Hi All,

We use NVIDIA graphic cards with Barco ISIS MDP-471 (analog) and FD2k-2824 (Digital) for a couple of years now.
For the best image quality I recommend NVIDIA Quadro FX cards.

The Barco ISIS has analog BNC inputs. Although I use a good VGA to BNC cable, with black text on white you see some faint shadows to the right of each letter. We will probably upgrade them with a digital input.

The eg-electronic FD2K-2824 has two dual DVI inputs. Connected to a NVIDIA graphic card gives you a perfect picture.

My xorg.conf for a dual monitor setup of a Barco ISIS display and a 1280x1024 LCD display.
The devices usbmouse1 and usbkeyboard1 are links to the /dev/input/event.. of the input devices.
(CentOS 5.4 , kernel 2.6.18-164.10.1.el5, X.Org X Server 1.7.3 and NVIDIA driver 195.22).
