So anyways I am getting a new monitor, 22". Currently using a 17". As you can see, that is a pretty big difference. I was considering getting a new Graphics Card, because I wasn't too sure my current one would handle it. I know the rest of my PC could use some upgrading, but that would have to wait, don't have the money for it. I probably only have like 300$ to spend on a new graphics card as it is.
I am modest gamer, which is why I ask, I would like my games to be playable, I don't think the 7800GT can do it. Suggestions, comments, whatever. Thanks
The craziest thing happened....I am very happy with new monitor, besides the one dead pixel, but I was actually able to fix it. I left a rapidly changing color pallete over it for a few hours while I was at school, didn't think it would work. Got home, and it was fixed.
Anyways though, craziest thing....my performance in all my games has improved. All I can think of is maybe the bitmaps in the games are all for larger resolutions or something?
No worries man.Your 7800gt will run your new monitor no problem.It will run high resolution as well.The 7800gt is considered a good card still,even though you can not buy them anymore.They stopped producing them cause they put out the 7900gt as well as a 7800gtx(which is the same as a 7900gt).Anyways enjoy your new monitor.Goodluck.
