    How does the riMac perform with a second monitor (1280 x 1024) ?

    I'm used to two monitors and wonder what the experience is like with an additional 1k-ish monitor .

    Thanks, guys.

    Performing just fine so far on my wife's new 5K. I used on thunderbolt chain for the TB2 raids for her data and backup disks and the other for the monitor (1K).
    To match the style she is used to, I had to uncheck "displays have their own spaces" in the mission control prefs, then restart.

    It is smooth for me with a 2560x1440 monitor attached to it. So something smaller should be fine as well.

    Yup, no problems here with a Dell 30" 2560x1600, DP cable in the TB port.

    running an additional 1440p screen on mine. Works great. Lower end video card was very choppy with the extra screen.

    Same. 4k on base. Runs great.

    295x will have no problems

    Which one? Maybe a Dell UP2414Q? I'm very interested in this combination.

    I have a m295x iMac with a 27" Cinema Display and a Thunderbolt Display and it runs perfectly.
