MBPR and this monitor = makes sense

Hi guys,

I am thinking of getting the BenQ XL2420T Professional Gaming Monitor in combination with my Mac Book Pro Retina.

I just read good review about it.

I am just wondering if the MBPR is strong enough to support this monitor.

What would I use it for:

- play games like Starcraft2, max payne3, crysis3
- work
- watch movies (how far is 3D spread, how useful is it really?)

THanks for your opinions.

Since the MacBook Pro with Retina Display supports three external monitors with two displays at 2560 x 1600 pixel and one at 1920 x 1200 pixel, one measly monitor with 1920 x 1080 pixel will do just fine.
