I purchased a 30" Dell monitor so I would have more real estate to edit graphics.
After plugging it into my laptop; using an HDMI cable, I went to setup and discovered that I should set the resolution to 2650x1600. But my computer's highest resolution setting is 1920x1080.
Have purchased too much monitor for my computer? Should I just set it to 1920x1080 run with that res, or would it make better sense to simply return it and get a monitor that doesn't overpower my computer?
One of the things I noticed was that there is an MST (Display port) plug that Dell provided a cable for, but my computer doesn't have a female plug that accommodates the terminal end of that cable.
Oddly, Dell didn't include an HDMI cable so I had to go out an buy one. Should that be a sign that I shouldn't be using one?
