Re: Upgrading video card for Dell M1710 - Dual link DVI-D possible?
Ok, I see, thanks for that.
Just to update, I opted to forget about trying to run a 30" as it's just too expensive and today I took receipt of two Samsung 24" 2433BW for under £400 the pair which right now are running well with my M1710 and GeForce Go7900 GS 256MB - one off the VGA and one off the DVI.
Although I haven't yet figured out how to make the laptop screen work as well as the dual monitors and am not sure if this is possible with my video card - in Nvidia settings it gives me all the options of multiple monitors except running all three which is a bit disappointing as I read someone managed this with a Dell M90.
Also, if I play a video in iTunes or a DVD I have to just turn the second monitor off as the video will try to play full screen on the other screen no matter what I do, and then will start flickering and eventually go black. This isn't really a problem though as if I'm going to play a video I don't need the second monitor to work anyway. I suspect the problems are due to the 256MB card, but I really don't know.
