good graphic cards for 2K resolution?

hey everyone. This is a noob question. I wonder if I am able to play games (BF4, Arma 3, Garry's mod, Watchdogs etc) on 2K resolution using a XFX R9 280(non X)? Will it meet my expectations with FPS ranging from 60-100? or should i save a little more and get a 280X or 290 reference cards?

    i was about to spend the extra $180 on a xfx r9 290....i still want to save money but idk if the 280 is good enough to handle ultra at 2k settings
  3. it's not for ultra on 2k. just save some cash and get a r9 290. i did just buy my cards on ebay for 255$ r9 290 are cheap on ebay because of coin mining but the cards i got where oem.
  4. 2560x1440/1600 etc
  5. If you're wanting to play at 2K resolutions with high settings and framerates then you either need to consider the ASUS GTX 780 DCUII http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DWV3NM6 if you want to go Nvidia or the Sapphire R9 290 TRI-X OC http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HJOXUKC if you want to go AMD.

    Anything less will either give you low frames per second or you will be limited to medium-high settings for high fps.

    This would be 4k+ resolutions.

    No, 4K is 3840 x 2160 or 4096 x 2160
