Or do i have to set-up something into the driver's control panel?

Thanks guys!
Pretty much any GPU now should be able to display BluRay video. It's more a function of the drive and software than the GPU. DVI was and still is used extensively in home theater for transferring video. Most first generation HDTVs and Projectors used DVI and component.

I believe your Dell Monitor is an IPS monitor and that is why the UltraSharp U2410 is pricy. It has better components, produces 12 bit colour, as well as being a 16:10 picture and other features that you don't normally find on your standard monitor. Anyone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the type of monitor you presently have is a preferred monitor that professional Photographers and Graphic Artists, etc... like to use and thus the cost of it is greater due to parts and the superior materials used in the composition of the screen, which allows said monitor to achieve a greater colour reproduction professionals like to have. Normally good quality IPS monitors are over $1000, but LG has some for around $300+ and ASUS just came out with one that is approximately $500, that is the ASUS PA246Q. I picked one up this past week and it is crisp to say the least, not too mention a lot of features I hope to put to good use, using Painter 12 (just learning & haven't a clue as to what I am doing, lol).

I was told they are not the best monitors for gaming, but I don't really know why that is. It could be because their response times are typical slower than a non IPS monitor. I am not an expert though.

I hope this helps in providing some info, as to why the Ultrasharp 2410 is so pricy.

Best Regards,

Mr.Atomic
Thanks for the infos! Alltho i already knew it was a category apart, i had never taken time to read more about why exactly they were so pricy.

Nope. It should be just plug and play like any other monitor. You will need some BluRay playback software just like you'd need with a DVD.
