Why can't I play games at a high resolution?

Todd from

Todd just got a new AlienWare laptop and he's looking now to build his own desktop. Leo says these days he doesn't see any advantage to building your own desktop because you have to support it. And they're not cheaper to build anymore.

Todd has a pair of 30” Apple displays and wants to know why he can't use the higher resolution settings? Leo says that it could be a frame rate issue that's causing the Alienware to choose it. And there's likely a hardware mismatch because the Apple Cinema Display uses Dual Link connectors. You'll need to get a Dual Link adapter to run at the higher resolutions.
