    Hi, I have an unused Dell T30 Server that has an NVIDIA GT710 installed, MSI 1GD3H LP to be exact. I'm considering using it with a 1440p monitor that only uses HDMI and Display Port, no DVI-D connection. Will the Card display 1440p over HDMI at 60Hz? I don't have access to the computer as its in storage and I'm yet to order the Monitor and just want to make sure before I buy the Screen.

    The GT710 card has Dual Link DVI which should be fine for 1440p @ 60Hz but its the HDMI port I'm unsure about. Specifications say it will do upto 4096x2160 @24Hz over HDMI but MSI don't list supported resolutions and I don't particularly want to be stuck with 1440p @ 30/24Hz. Some forums say the GT710 should be fine for 1440p @60Hz over HDMI 1.4a and some say otherwise. Does anyone here have any experience with this card? If the Card won't do 1440p @ 60Hz over HDMI would I be able to use a DVI-D to HDMI adapter? Any advice appreciated.

    Both are correct.

    It depends on the total pixel count, so using the TV-style terminology that only quotes vertical resolution will give mixed answers as some 1440 pixel high screens will work and some won't.

    For the most common resolutions, [email protected] is perfectly fine with Dual-link DVI or HDMI 1.3/1.4. [email protected] requires DisplayPort 1.2+ or HDMI 2.0+.
