yeah man from what I gathered its a great card for the money. I checked out some videos on youtube also with nearly the same setup as mine and it seems it can run Crysis no problem. Hopefully I won't have to upgrade for Max Payne 3
you need a bigger screen. 1680/1050 minimum as your wasting your cards performance at that screen size. running your games at such a low rez will cause bottlenecking in less demanding games like cod 4, or games of a similar or lesser quality... you will pump out around 400fps on brothers in arms. this will cause the cpu to bottleneck and degrade system performance.
That's a bit low resolution for the gpu and a cpu that can't OC much. Why not go for the 6670 or maybe 6770?
Otherwise there's 19 inch 1080p monitors going at newegg for 105 usd.
You can save more by getting the Corsair 430w psu.
although there are a few low dpi monitors out there in big cases. its more likley you have a 16/9 or 16/10 monitor. its just not set correctly... go into your display properties and check out the screen rez options... also if its a square monitor it could be 12/10, but if its widescreen shaped you have it setup wrong.
better still whats the make and model.
BTW do not buy this monitor, or anything from acer. I've had nothing but problems with it including that "No Signal" error with two of them. And I've heard many people have also had this problem. Even my acer laptop sucks.

so, click on the desktop, click screen rezolution and set it to 1080/1050 this is the nativ rez of your monitor... when you play a game go into the video settings and select 1680/1050 to play games at native rez
your native rez is 1680/1050 and you should always try to run an lcd monitor at its default screen size. your gfx card can easily handle this display and you will be able to run every game oh either high or very high settings.
so there you have it, you have a bigger screen than you thought you had..
the reason your screen my not be auto detecting properly is windows may need a driver for it... best to check on the acer site to see if you need 1.
