    Yes i saw a Dell Optiplex one listed for a GTX 745, i was not sure as each manufacturer is different with any model. Reason i ask is to update Graphics card drivers have you ? I also wanted to see it's connection on this card.

    64bit or 32bit windows 10 ?

    Hard to think why not having a driver would remove settings on a monitor as this is part of the monitors display itself and not Windows.

    How again was it without the new monitor hooked and just the older Dell Monitor ? Still loose settings ?

    adding older acer monitor to dell laptop

    Acer Laptops :are they crap ?

    Acer makes a cheap prodcut period. They user lower end plastics, as well as assembly. (I hate working on Acer laptops)

    If budget is an issue then get an acer... though for $50 more you could get a gateway that will smoke the acer in terms of quality.

    For a laptop though i would suggest one of the DV7T's from HP or a Business class Toshiba/HP/IBM (not the lenovo branded, the Thinkpads)
