It is possible, but I am not optimistic.
Your system has both VGA and DVI-D video connectors. The VGA connector for sure cannot handle this high a resolution. The DVI-D (Digital-only DVI) connector type that is utilized in this system would seem to indicate that it has Dual Link DVI-D support, but I was unable to find any information about this feature in the HP documentation.
You would certainly need a 1440p monitor that has a DVI-D connector in order to try this. Do you have a way to test this monitor before making the purchase? You may be able to find a local PC repair shop that will connect your system to a 1440p monitor and see if it will work...
Hope this helps,
Hey, thanks very much for your time looking into that, Scott! I did some reading about DVI after I read your response. Then I checked and both my desktop and the 1440p monitor I was eyeing on Amazon have dual link DVI-D... So does that mean 1440p resolution should work? Or are there other factors... Is it also dependant on the GPU's processing capabilities? I can hardly find any info on Intel's "HD Graphics" on the J2900 CPU.... Just that's it's 2GB and supports DirectX 11.
The Intel HD Graphics capability in the Bay Trail processors is supposed to be capable of supporting two 1080p monitors, so it shouldn't have any problems supporting similar frame rates on a single 1440p monitor. If you also connect your existing (I presume 1080p) monitor to the VGA output, then you might see a small drop in frame rates to the 1440p monitor, but I wouldn't think it enough to cause you any display issues. Again, my biggest concern was whether it truly had Dual Link DVI-D support as I could not determine this.
Also, note the following:
