Will my current graphics card be able to handle games well at 2560x1440 resolution?

My current graphics card is an EVGA Geforce GTX 660, and the maximum resolution for the card is 4096x2160. I'm about to purchase a new monitor and the one i'm looking at is an ASUS PA279Q 27" LCD monitor with a max resolution of 2560x1440. I've seen charts of a 660 Ti doing fairly well in FPS at ultra settings at that resolution. but since i'm lacking the Ti, I don't know how much that will effect the performance.

It won't run at ultra, but it will run. If you need to, just turn down the resolution. You will want to upgrade your GPU eventually to take full advantage of that monitor. Depending on your PSU/motherboard, you might want to look into SLI.

I've got a Gigabyte Z87X-OC motherboard and a 750 watt PSU. The board is good for 2-way SLI and I am also looking to upgrade my graphics card at the same time to an ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II OC

If it's in your budget, you can't go wrong with a GTX 780. Insane performance from that thing.

If you sli your 660 with another 660 it can.remember wht every1 will always tell you 1 high tier gpu is always better than 2 mid tier gpus in sli....unless you have budget issues or if u change gpus every 6months to a year.
