    Hi
    I usually run a 2 monitor set up. The ones I have are 1920 x 1200 resolution (16x10 ratio)

    Have just bought a new small form desktop which has a max resolution from the graphics of 3840x2160 (16x9 ratio).

    Connecting the two both via HDMI is giving me a highly underwhelming experience in terms of picture quality. Is there anyway to get the two to work together or do i need to look to get 2 1920x1080 16x9 ratio) monitors?

    TIA for any advice

    What OS are you using ? I've had a 2 monitor setup on Windows 7 and then Windows 10 with a 4x3 and 16:10 monitor (both with 1200 vertical resolution) working fine for a number of years. Are both running at their correct (native) resolution ?
