Hey guys,

I'm building a gaming pc soon, I just was wondering what graphics card to get? I want to get for 2 main reasons:

- Play Games such as Modern Warfare 3, Black Ops II or/and Battlefield 3.
- Editing Videos / Designing Pictures Using Adobe Products.

I don't care about any feature, I just want a perfect graphics card that will last me for long time. Everyday I'm getting a headache because of this, its really a hard decision for me.

Info may help you:
I will be using 24" Monitor & i7 3770K Processor.

*Note: Please help me by not saying "or" because it makes me 100% confused.

Thanks,.

OK lets start by asking.
What resolution is that 24" monitor?
What is your budget?
What power supply do you have? Exact model or link would help.

Well at 1000$ for a GPU, get the GTX780 and smile all the way home! LOL But I really would suggest considering a larger resolution IPS panel (2540x1440) resolution screen instead of a high refresh rate screen that you will not see the difference on.

I agree with Novuake, if your budget is $1000 then a GTX 780 is your best bet to get right now. Also with the GTX 780 being around $650, you can use the remaining money in your budget to buy yourself a bigger monitor with a higher resolution so you would be utilizing the card to it's fullest.

For a cheap 2560x1440 monitor, I know you can get an Achievia Shimian for around $350+ on ebay. It's a very good monitor that has pretty good reviews, but be advised that it only had 1 input and that is a D-DVI. Also with any IPS monitors there will be some backlit bleeding. This monitor is particular is shipped from Korea and they offer pixel perfect plans to ensure your monitor is good. This also comes with or without a glossy glass on top of the screen.

If you are looking for something more mainstream like Dell, Asus, Samsung etc. then you would have to be willing to spend twice that amount.

Another cheap monitor for no frills, just single input is Monoprice. Heard some good reviews for that as well.

NOTE: That if you buy the Korean made monitor then you have to make sure it comes with an adapter or a different voltage setting, because they use by default 220v.

It's costly but has pretty good reviews and people say its color calibration is just as good as the Dell(this has the best color calibration for any 1440p IPS monitor).

What I'd do is just get the GTX 780 now, then buy or use a smaller cheaper monitor for the time being. Save up a little bit more money and get yourself one of these 1440p monitors.
