I recently bought a DELL 300WFPt 30" LCD Widescreen Monitor for playing online poker on because it has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels fully expecting it to have an HDMI port which I could use to connect it to my laptop with but it doesnt. It only has DVI or USB ports whereas my Laptop has HDMI or VGA ports.
So I bought a HDMI to DVI cable and got it all connected but when I go into setting from control panel the max resolution for the external display it will give me is 1280 * 800 which isnt good enough for me to play the multiple tables of poker I desire.
So obviously my question is what can I do? I assume a VGA to DVI cable wouldnt be any better? Ive searched around the net for hours trying to find solutions but am starting to worry I might have to buy a new computer with a DVI port on it, is this the case?
Last resort is I have a Macbook air as a personal computer which has a display port, would going from that to the DVI port on the monitor give me better resolution?
Thanks for your help!
