I'm right on the cusp of buying at least one 27" monitor, possibly two, I want to know before investing in a high res monitor if anyone is running these resolutions, and if the VGA or HDMI (or possibly the video card) chokes when running these. If so, I'll just buy two cheaper 1920x1080's and be done with it.

Thanks!

Buy two 1080p monitors. You will get more screen space, the video card can handle it (if not gaming :p) but the link (HDMI or VGA) will not. Displayport would, however.

that's unfortunate, I currently have a 24" 1920x1200, so a 27" 1920x1080 seems like a sidegrade really. On the up side my second monitor will bump up in size. Thanks for your help.
