Best GPU with a 19" Widescreen Monitor

Hi guys :>

Which graphics card will be best with a 19" Samsung LCD (non HD) monitor, because I don't wanna get a GTX 295/280 just for the overkill.

And just for knowledge sake, which card is best with a 22" Samsung LCD (non HD) monitor?

  1. If that 19" is 1680x1050, a single 4870 would be sufficient, i think a 22" is also 1680x1050. If it is 1400x900, you probably wouln't need more than a 4850. Not quite sure what you mean by non HD, whether u mean 480p or just not exactly 720p ir 1080p. Most monitors basically support HD, just not the same ratio as typical HDTVs.
  2. Hmm... Even a Radeon 4850 is a slight overkill for 1680x1050.

    8800GT would be the best bet. I'd choose the 4850 for the extra power though.
  3. i would go with a 4870. my 2 gtx260 in sli even struggle with crysis maxed out at 1680x1050.

    Mmmm, 4850 wouldn't be that much of an overkill for 1680x1050 IMO. Many games won't need that much power to be "playable", but then you just increase AA/AF and enjoy the eye-candy :P. At least you have a choice between high FPS or image quality.
  5. 19" is 1440x900
    22" is 1680x1050
    24" is 1920x1200

    Why GPU is best for each of these monitor sizes?
  6. Sry, which is best for each of these monitor sizes?

    I am basing these monitor sizes and resolution off of Samsungs T Rose Series.

    19" is 1440x900 - 9800gtx or 4850
    22" is 1680x1050 - gtx260 or 4870
    24" is 1920x1200 - gtx280 or 4870x2

    I have a 9800gtx with a 22" and it's not enough for games like Crysis, or even maxing CoD 4 and 5. Games using the Half Life 2 and Unreal 3 engine are easy enough to run.
  8. So ... if i get a 9800 GTX+ with a 19" will I be able to run Crysis?
  9. ^ not at maximum with 60fps, but dont feel bad, no one can.
  10. your asking this question all wrong.

    grab the best card you can afford, no one can run crysis at max with 60FPS, so dont feel bad about that. IF you can afford the 4870 then get that atleast then you will be garanteed to play games that come out for the next two years. give yourself room for other games that come out in the future.
