30"... Mmmmm 2560x1600 pixels. I wonder if this is the same panel as Apple's 30".

Now if only NV had DDL DVI on their non-Apple cards. Doesn't even look like the Gainward SuperGoldenThenBronzedThenPlatinumizedSamples 7800's have DDL DVI.

Are you saying the 7800s can't use it at full resolution? If so, I don't believe that is correct.

OWA, I googled a little more and it appears most 7800's have one DDL DVI port to drive the 2560x1600 pixels of the 30" monster. Only EVGA's website specifically lists the resolution as supported, but I found "it works" posts on BFG, and XFX cards as well (not surprising given they all come from the same ref designs).

Crud... I wanted a reason so that I couldn't even contemplate upgrading.

It's still a tough resolution to game at so you can use that to deter the urge to buy it.

Has anybody heard how much those are gonna be MSRP? I really really doubt I could ever fork out that much money for it but just curious. I've had my 2005FPS for about 2 months (I guess) now and I'm still loving it. I watch all of my movies at my PC now, play some awesome games and it's just amazing.

Not to mention that the 2005FPS is quite a "conversational piece" when people are over at my place haha. "OMG that's a HUGE monitor!!!!" Just think if I had the 30"er.

Just ordered a 2405 can't wait, with all the good things you guys say about the monitors from Dell. Just one thing, its my first LCD and I know about the fixed aspect ratio, but if I ran certain games at half the monitors resolution it should display properly, sync corner to corner? Now to go read up on widescreen gaming.

Merry Christmas!
