Hi, I have a 19 inch monitor & wanted to know if the max resolution 1440*900 affects what kind of gaming card i buy ? I heard that a 4670 radeon or the 9600 GT is fine for that resolution and that maybe a ATI 4830 may be overkill ? Is that true ?
I have a Dell XPS 400, pentium 4 dual-core 2.8ghz with an XFX 4850 running on the Dell 375 watt power supply. I can run everything on highest settings with no problems. The 4850s are not that power hungry compared to many other cards.
It depends on what kind of power supply you have. A cheapo 400 will be worse than a good name brand 350 watt.
