I have a question regarding the high resolution monitors now becoming available at a (sort of) affordable price.
Currently I use 2 x 24” monitors, running at 1920 x 1280. I’m running out of real estate: I typically run SSDR and perhaps Chrome or Outlook on one monitor, with Log4OM, WSJT-X, JT Macros and JTAlert on the second one. Looking at options, 2560 x 1440 or even the 4K monitors running 3840 x 2160 might be logical choices, both available in 28” – 29” screen sizes.
Something I’ve never been sure of: can I run different resolutions from the same graphics card, perhaps 1920 x 1280 on one of my existing monitors, and a higher resolution on another? Financially that would hurt less as I could just upgrade the one monitor initially. Running Windows 8.1 64 bit.
As far as I can see, my Radeon R9 270 2Gb card would be capable, and as well as the 2 DVI sockets I now use there are unused DisplayPort and HDMI sockets. Alternatively I guess I could have a 3 monitor setup by using both my existing monitors plus a nice new higher resolution one! Now, how to make more room on my desk...!
