    I've been imaging a bunch of old CD-ROMs over the last couple of days, and one had an installer for AT&T's WorldNet - which came with a 640x480 tiled backdrop bitmap.

    Quite fancied adding it to my collection, so...

    ...I recreated it as a 1920x1200 version to use as a wallpaper.

    Use a dual-link DVI cable instead.

    I honestly thought that the DisplayPort connector was the only one that supports the full resolution until @jinq-sea put me straight on that! :grin:

    You know, I recall you mentioning that the DVI was single-link and being a bit confused!

    I have no idea where I got that from, but I could swear I remember reading that the DVI ports have dual-link connectors but are only wired for single link. Clearly not!
