    Hi all,

    my apple cinema display connected to my mid 2011 27 has gone snafu so looking to replace. Question, what would people recommend 30" max and can this iMac drive a 4k display.

    GFX AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB
    2.7 GHz Intel Core i5

    Thank you all.

    That iMac cannot drive a 4k display. At this point only the 5k retina iMac can drive a 5k display (its internal one). As for a replacement the Dell 2713H is a good choice. A couple people have them at my office and like them. There is also the cheaper 2713HM which is 8-bit instead of 10-bit and has not quite as nice of a backlight, but is still a good monitor.
