What GPU will be best suited to max games at 1600x900 with 60+- FPS

I have a single 1600x900 display monitor and it suits me fine, I don't want to overpay in GPU that could max ( ultra ) games like Crysis 3, Metro Last Light, GTA V, AC4 Black Flag and many more.

I won't be going dual-monitor since it doesn't really give an edge(for me) in my opinion.

I only have experience with Crysis 3. But this worked for me...

Phenom II x6 1090t @ 4.0GHz
2 x Radeon HD 7950's @ 1000/1250 (* stock for temps/fan noise)
All details maxed
2x SMAA
1920 x 1080 resolution
35-60FPS (* VSync was @ 60 so higher FPS in some areas is likely)
Average FPS was 50+ 90% of the time

It stays pretty much pegged at 60FPS. The only time it drops a little, and briefly, is during gunfights with a lot of FX on screen in large areas with several AI enemies moving against my position.

There was no bottleneck I could see. Felt very balanced. The CPU and both GPUs would go from 50-90% usage on all CPU and both graphics cards, depending on the situation.

This was also on a GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard, capable of supporting 2 PCIe GPUs @ x16, or 4 @ x8.

Going down to 1 GPU I was getting 30-40 FPS, even when overclocking it to 1120/1500 (Near 7970 performance levels). The CPU wasn't at full load. So looks like a dual-GPU setup will get you more in this game.

one 7870 should do the job possibly 7850 sense your only playing at 720p resolution ..

well its not exactly 1080p either 1920 x 1080 > mIm 1600 x 900 ... while you may be correct about that its like a mutt resolution .. still same effect 7870 is capable of playing most games on high / ultra settings at that resolution ..

I don't get it, I believe the pixelation for 900p, if that's the thing you guys call a 1600x900 by or not, is higher than a 720p, but yes I think 7870 is good especially the XT/LE version of it, but here 760 jetstream is only about 4 dollars higher, I am worried about the next-gen console favoring the 760 less too.

I would choose ATI because of this but nvidia seems to have ati beat even on their title games( A GTX 760 beating a HD7950 on Bioshock Infinite / Dirt 3 / Hitman Absolution etc ). Is that possible?

just depends on the titles you plan to play to be honest .. I run a 1090t with 2 6870's in crossfire.. my second computer is a 3570k with a 7870 running 1600 x 900 as far as im concerned its a mutt resolution not that its bad but generally speaking once you go too a 1080p resolution you don't want to go back and there is a noticeable difference. monitors make a big difference so if you plan on buying a card greater then a 760 / 7870 consider upgrading your monitor as well.

At that resolution the MSI GTX 760 TF http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DIH8OW8/ref=as_li_q... would be a great option.



Here in our town, the shop only has 760 Jetstream, is that okay or better?


The Jetstream is a great card. :) 


Will Jetstream run cool?

I saw this card in another city and it looks like i would run cool

What third party manufacturers do you suggest? Will Jetstream run cooler than a 7950 like the one above?
