Can my build run a 2560x1440 resolution?????? (ON MAX?)

Hello.

I am looking for a new monitor and really want a Crossover 27q import.
I have done a lot of research and read many reviews so the quality of the product is not something I need answers on(although personal experiences are welcome)

My build is as follows
Intel Core i5 3570k
Gigabyte Ga z77x ud3h
Sapphire 3gb HD7970 GHz edition

Will this setup allow me to run most games at max settings or will I have to scale it back a bit(and by how much)?

Any help would be great.

  1. should run them on max... might need to overclock the cpu in some cases... but it should be fine.
  2. Really?
    Almost sounds too good to be true seeing as I have read so many forums where the answer was yes then no:)

    Does it help that my card is a 3gb GHz edition or not?
  3. No build runs everything on max with good FPS, it isn't even worth trying. A 7970 Ghz can run some games at max, but many games will require you to lower settings some, which is fine. It would be better with two, but not necessary, as long as you don't require maxed settings.
  4. You've got a good rig for that resolution and yes, having 3gb ram helps because that resolution needs a larger page frame. Yes your ghz edition helps too because it is clocked faster than the stock version.

    No I don't need absolute max ultra settings, just as long as I don't have to lower them too much to the point where the higher res screen is working against me.

    That does sound good as well because I have about ten different tabs open on high res IPS panels and the prices are ridiculous.
  6. without going to a titan that is the best you can do with a single GPU. wouldn't recommend crossfire as it has too many drawbacks, and real world performance gain isn't a lot. go NVidia sli if you want multiple cards.
  7. So could I also play pretty old games at this resolution such as thief deadly shadows?
  8. It should max on those old games (that is if they can display such a high resolution at all)

    Thats what I was wondering. How much would I have to turn down my settings to play games like Battlefield 3, Bioshock Infite and Mass Effect

    It depends on your target framerate. The amount of performance gain from turning down settings differs between games. For detailed info you'd have to ask someone with a similar setup.
