It seems like every review I read theres almost no benchmarks for 1680 x 1050. Its weird, cause considering how cheap 22" monitors are now, I would imagine there are a bunch of gamers using this res. Anyway, I'm upgrading to a 22" later this week and I was wondering how my 4870 512MB will preform under this res. I like to play all the new games out right now (except for Crysis cause I'm not really a fan of that game. Let the flaming begin lol). I also usually play with high/maxed-out settings and at 2x - 4x AA. Anyone got any links or experiences with the 512MB 4870 at these settings? Also, once 4870 prices go down next year I'm considering buying a 1GB 4870 and running them in CrossFire. Again, good idea at 1680 x 1050?
it should perform great. i have an 9800gtx+ running on a 22" monitor and for the most part it runs 1680x1050. cant run crysis up there but games like bioshock, cod4, oblivion. and the 4870 outperforms the 9800gtx+ by a lot.
seems to be fine with me. playing both crysis`s at 19680x1050, at a mix of high/very high settings, with my old 1280x1040 screen hooked up to the other dvi port with my monitoring programs up and running, and im not getting any lag or anything. Running an firstname.lastname@example.org and 4gb of ram
