Hello Guys,

 

I have a ASUS Radion HD 7750 Graphics card - http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/HD77501GD5/

 

I have two Samsung SyncMaster P2450 Monitors.

 

Currently I have them both setup as dual monitor but one is using a DVI cable and the other is using a HDMI cable but I've noticed on the HDMI monitor it is a little blurred. I can cope with it but I noticed it isn't as clean as the HDMI one.

 

I was looking into other options and I found DVI splitters. I would like to know if this would work and I will have the same quality. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DMS59-DVI-2-Splitter-Cable-/271147820511?pt=UK_Computing_Sound_Vision_Video_Cables_Adapters&hash=item3f21ab65df

 

I do play games on one monitor and I do photo editing inside of photoshop.

 

I wanted to make sure that this is ok and it works before I buy the DVI splitter.

I highly doubt that will work. The video card would have to have a 59Pin connector for that to hook up to.

 

That is a entirely different connector than the normal DVI connector. I have seen that connector on older Video cards in Dells for example.

 

What I would do is look at the native resolution of the monitor hooked up via HDMI and set the HDMI output port on the card to that resolution. That will give the best results. Any non native resolution setting will give a somewhat less sharp appearance.

 

Good Luck

Roger

A DVI splitter like what you listed would likely just mirror the one display (i.e. same thing on both screens).
