Thanks Chuck,

One thing I found I had to do was change the resolution to1920 X 1080.

Seems to be easier on the eyes.

Yes, that's a very nice resolution! I wish my monitor supported it.

If and when you upgrade, I think you ought to consider this one.

I can't believe the difference from my 22inch Acer.

Have a good night.

I'm thinking of probably upgrading sometime in the new year.

It really deserves a dedicated graphics card
Hi Dude,

Quick question : I was on the Amazon review site and a reviewer said it is impossible to get 2560 X 1080 with HDMI ( which I use and my comp reports that I'm getting).

He says you must use Display Port - which I don't have - guess I would need a dedicated graphics card, but I'm not a gamer and can't justify the expense.

The resolution on the monitor is crystal clear, but the reviewer says it is really 1980 X 1060 being stretched.

I spoke to LG and they say he is wrong.

What's your opinion?

Thanks,

Paul

The page for the LG 29UM65 says it is 2560-1080. The OP's mobo specs says Asus P8Z77. The Asus page for that board -

Integrated Graphics Processor
Multi-VGA output support : HDMI/DVI/RGB/DisplayPort ports
- Supports HDMI with max. resolution 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz
- Supports DVI with max. resolution 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz
- Supports RGB with max. resolution 2048 x 1536 @ 75 Hz
- Supports DisplayPort with max. resolution 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz

so IMHO, the OP needs a separate gfx card to get the native monitor resolution on HDMI. Display Port looks OK.

Thanks for the info.

Guess I'll have to stick with what I have.

The specs that have been posted show that your monitor and your motherboard both have Display Port which have higher bandwidth then HDMI to support those higher resolutions. A few bucks for a Display Port cable would be worth a try. Check the ports to see what they are (Standard or Mini) I use this site for my cables but they are available everywhere.

What's the purpose of getting a display port cable if I don't have a dedicated graphics card?

According to previous posts, that's what I would need, right?
