I'm a student looking for a 27" monitor with 2560x1440 resolution for an affordable price

I found this one on ebay: link

Now they say it's not compatible with laptops but I think that's strange.

The monitor requires a DVI-D cable and a Dual link graphics card.

I have a clevo p170hm with a nvidia gtx580m.

On the page of nvidia (link) it says my card does support dual link.

My laptop has this port: linkimage

My question is will this monitor work with my laptop?

Does anyone have experience with these kinds of monitors?

Thanks in advance.

Yup it should work, not sure why the Ebay seller is saying it wouldn't? Your laptop supports DVI-D (in fact, it looks like it has a DVI-I port) & supposedly the GPU does support dual-link which should be enough to drive the monitor.

Just make sure you have a DVI-D cable & you should be all set.

For what it's worth, Wikipedia has a good page on the different DVI specs.

Yeah, that's DVI-I, dunno why they put DVI-D. New board I guess, they just used the same case to save money. :p

That will work fine. Ebay people are stupid sometimes.
