Well now that I have my spiffy 8 core mac pro its time to start acquiring the required pieces and parts. First up is an open CL compatible graphics card and a monitor with some real estate. (right now its connected to a spare I was using as a secondary for my Imac.) I have been looking at 27 inch monitors and quickly discovered that the 2560x1440 monitors are a lot more than the 1920x1080. I have two questions. First, if I go with the standard 1080P resolution, how is that going to look at desktop viewing distances compared to the higher resolution panels? Secondly, what can anyone tell me about these 2560x1440 High Res 27" monitors that are made with the IPS panels that were rejected by top tier brands? The prices sound to good to be true and some even guarantee no dead or hot pixels.
