I read in tomshardware, support for DVI till 1920x1200 only leh.

In any case, whats' the cheapest discrete card to do dual link DVI at 2560x1440?

HD6450?
Actually any entry level gpu should support 2560 fine.
IGPs are still limited to 1920*1200.

If simply for viewing, most GPU will be able to do that job. Like 7850 for example.

Quick Reference Guide to 3rd Generation Intel® Core
Mini DP supports 1440 too. Entry should be @ 6850 to 7850 range.

Depends if the monitor supports it. I can only guess he is going for the Korean IPS monitors which only have a DVI output.
Great monitor thou. Too bad its too big for my usage.

Actually if u get a passive adapter it should do the trick? has to be passive though. I may be wrong. But i will try tomorrow and update.

If you want to convert a mini DP to dvi.
Yes it would if you didn't use all of the DVI or hdmi connectors. Forgot what was the unit called. If all are used, You need to get an active adaptor.

First time I on it, So bright.. lol. Couldn't find the brightness controls.
But the panel colours were prefect. Slightly on the yellowish side but as clear my Dells. Really loved it apart from the brightness.
