I bought an 8800gts430MB and I'm already regretting it before it even arrives
The reason is that I just spotted the Westinghouse LVM-47W1 47" 1080p LCD Video Monitor that has a monster resolution of 1920 x 1080.
I sit 4-5 meters away from my living room TV and with that size monitor I figuer I can use it as a full fledged PC monitor, but will my 8800GTS320MB be able to handel that many pixels with modern games like Stricker at high settings with reasonable AA and Af at native 1920 x 1080???
Also if anybody has any expirience with this monitor as a PC monitor please share your thoughts.
Well - in my personal experience a 22" wide screen at 1680x1050 is fine for the 320.
I just played through a couple of levels of FEAR last night because I wanted to test the card overclocked to 635/909 and it ran really smooth with everything maxed and AA at 4x. No hitches or stutters at all.
The overclocking made a HUGE difference in games like Gothic 3 and Oblivion as well. Gothic 3 especially responded great, going from being a little stuttery to basically smooth (minus the area loading stutters, of course)
P.S. - it'll top 80 degrees C but it's definitely worth it.
