Long story short, Im looking for a new monitor for my early 2007 MBP, something in the 27 inch range, costing less than $1000. I think i can get up to 2560 by 1600 on an external monitor per apples website, Is this true? and what cable do i use? i have been looking for answers on the forums and it looks like dvi is only good for 1920x1200? How would i connect my early 2007 mbp to get the max resolution on an external display as i do not have mini display port, display port, or tb port. There are some monitors I'm looking at Just need help and advice. Dell U2713hm Dell U2913wm Viewsonic WP2770 thanks in advance. Jeff EDit. I found i have this card NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with 128MB of GDDR3 SDRAM and dual-link DVI so if i use a dual link dvi i can get up to 2560 by 1600 resolution?
