    External monitor for the G75VX

    Hello,
    I want to buy an external monitor for my G75VX.
    I am seriously considering this http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...d&sku=320-2676
    My only concern is that it has not an HDMI.
    However it has:
    1 Digital Visual Interface connectors (DVI-D) with HDCP
    1 DisplayPort(DP)
    1 Video Graphics Array (VGA)

    What is the optimal connection to my laptop and what cable should I use?

    An alternative to the monitor above would be:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/CROSSOVER-27...item338433ee47

    However, the seller states"
    "Onboard graphics and APU chipset is not compatible.
    Laptop or laptop with docking station and Macbook series does not recommended for this kind of By-pass (DVI output only) model."

    Is it really not suitable for my asus?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Well your Thunderbolt port is also a Mini Display port some where there is a software switch to enable either Thunderbolt or Display port, and you have a HDMI port.
    I think I would go for the Mini display port first choice as long as you don't need it for Thunderbolt ? I'm sure you can get a cable that has Mini display to display.
    2nd would be HDMI

    So if the seller states this monitor is not for laptops I don't think I would buy it.
    You might want to look at Asus Monitors also they have some really nice ones.

    If you want the "Ultimate Gaming Monitor" you should go with the BenQ XL2420T 24"
    This monitor is "NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ 2 ready" with a 120Hz refresh rate (specification)
    Another good thing about this monitor you can download gaming profiles from the BenQ web page.

    This is the Ultimate in gaming monitors, designed for gamers, by gamers!
    So if your want more bang for your buck, go with this BenQ monitor!

    ASUS tech support has me going in circles on this.

    Which should I use? I have the g75vx and the vg248qe.

    Dual DVI to HDMI
    or
    HDMI to HDMI.

    Which will get me the highest refresh rate. or the best overall performance.

    Currently I have the HDMI/Forrest from audio quest but only pushes 60.

    I tried the display port to HDMI but it would not work.

    Will the DVI to HDMI be my best option?

    Or what is the best option. I dont think I can get to 144 with the 670mx vid card.

    Thanks for the info.

    The Monitor has HDMI, DVI and DUAL LINK DVI.

    The Laptop has VGA , HDMI and a Thunderbolt.

    Or what is the best option? I don't think I can get to 144 with the 670mx vid card. I do however want the most out of whichever cable connection.

    Thanks for the info.

    Thanks dude. I did read your postings earlier and purchased the item you listed but the mini port does not work???

    I went into the display and advanced but not changes options show up in the options to go from 60 to 120. Do I need to do some change in the laptop? The HDMI reads immediately. I'm at a loss here. What do you suggest?

    Do you have a pic of the cables your using. The mini I used was a small square for I guess is a MAC config. Maybe that's the problem.

    I'll go back and get the straight cable. I'll try that. I was givin one that converts an external MAC Monitor . So that may be the reason.

    Thanks again for the visual. I have been back and forth to best buy like 6 times by now. LOL. I'll get the glasses next. UDAHMAN!
