Hi Chris, Many thanks for the answer! Actually the PSU of both options is a limitation. None of them seems to support an upgrade to the GTX 760 (or anything with DDR5), witch in my opinion, would be a much better choice for a GPU than the GTX 745. In any case I'm not a gamer, I want this computer for work, and to perform well for the next years even when I sporadically run rendering software. Upgrading is not something I have in mind right now. You pointed a huge problem in the HDMI limitation. I don't know if you have access to a U2415 and can confirm that, but I haven seen anywhere that limitation of 1920x1080. Note two things: - HDMI have been outputting at more than 1080p for years! why would Dell step back? - The U2415 has a 16:10 aspect ratio, therefore a 1920x1080 can't be a native resolution for it. Even in amazon a specific question is answered differently by an owner of a U2415: www.amazon.com/.../ref=cm_cd_ql_tlc_al;asin=B00NZTKOQI Could you please confirm that you know the limitations in resolution of the HDMI in the U2415 from your personal experience? That information is very important to me, since the acquisition of those monitors depends on it. (Ps. Maybe vary form country to country (I'm thinking to buy this equipment in Singapore) but the XPS 8700 doesn't have the option of a GTX 660, only the GTX 720 and the GTX 745 http://www.dell.com/sg/p/xps-8700/pd )
I'm considering to get a OptiPlex 9020 (i7 4790, 16Gb, 1Tb) which is very similar to the XPS 8700, and the only thing holding me back is the graphic card. Both systems come with a NVidia Geforce GT... See more...
I'm considering to get a OptiPlex 9020 (i7 4790, 16Gb, 1Tb) which is very similar to the XPS 8700, and the only thing holding me back is the graphic card. Both systems come with a NVidia Geforce GTX 745 4Gb, which has a HDMI, a DVI, and a VGA outputs. As part of the system I want to get two Dell Ultrasharp U2415 monitors, and each has two HDMI and two DP inputs. My idea is to plug one of them with a HDMI-HDMI cable and the other with a DVI-to-HDMI cable (avoiding the analogical signal of the VGA). Anybody has successfully tried something similar? Can the GTX 745 run two independent monitors at 1920x1200 each? Is there any known issue with the DVI-to-HDMI cables?
