how many monitors at 2560x1440 with Nvidia?
 
When using Nvidia GTX 660 DirectCu II with 2 monitors or more, can they all run at resolution 2560x1440?

Also interested in new Dell Ultrasharp U2913WM panoramic 29" HD 2560x1080 .

A vast, 29" panoramic display with a 21:9 aspect ratio and 2560 x 1080 Full HD offers the screen space of side-by-side monitors without a distracting bezel in between. Plus, with a 178/178 (typical) ultra-wide viewing angle, you can enjoy an excellent view from almost any position.

I would hate that 29"... 1080 is not enough screen at the best of times.

Agreed...stick to 2560 x 1440 minimum, better yet 2560 x 1600 !!

LG has a 27"at 2560x1440 and a 21.9 aspect ratio. Those things should be GREAT for gamers.

still no answer to 2 monitors, can they all run at resolution 2560x1440?

thinking 2 27" 2560x1440" monitors better than 3 23 1920x1080" monitors

Well, I believe you should be able to run two monitors at that resolution but you couldn't run them both off the two DVI connectors since only one is dual link, so you would need to connect using two types of connectors or purchase an adapter for one of them. Obviously you wouldn't be able to do any serious gaming at that resolution with just one of these cards though.

Can I use the display port or hdmi for second monitor? which DVI is the dual link on Asus GTX 660? there is DVI-D and DVI-I on this card.

No gaming at all

The gtx 660 series comes with 2 dual link DVI and a display port + HDMI. Going from the DVI and display port specs, you can run 2 monitors with that resolution.

Thanks, now I can go ahead and order 2 27" monitors, trying to decide between Dell U2713HM , Asus PB278Q or even Apply Cinema Display ( not lightning connector model ) seems all panels almost made by LG except PLS panel made by Samsung.

FWIW I own a U2711 and a cheaper Korean Shimian 27" 2560X1440 and if I was you I would go for two Korean displays. Be it a Catsleap or Shimian or whatever the other ones are. I know when I bought mine I paid $289 and that included shipping. I had to pay some fees to UPS for brokerage but IIRC the total bill was ~$350 and that is not bad at all. My display was excellent. IMO it is something worth looking into.

...also, personally one primary 30" 2560X1600 with a secondary portrait 27" 2560X1440 would be my next move. 27" 2560X1440 is very nice yes but I do not like 16:9. 16:10 30" 2560X1600 that is what I want!
