Native resolution is 1680 x 1050, and the display can accept VGA, HDMI, and DVI input. Obviously, getting a GTX 295 or a 4890 X2 is too much, so here are GPU options that I've settled on:

Option 1: NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX
Option 2: ATI Radeon HD 4870

These are most suitable GPUs for the display right? (Listed from both brands to keep things fair) Of course, additional options are welcome.

uhhh what?

The 9800 gtx is not the 4870's vs card :sarcastic: 

And i hope your getting 1 gb as you are going to regret not going for the extra vram even at 1680x1050

Either 4870 1gb or 260 gtx....don't forget to get a evga 260 as you can overclock it and sell it with a warranty etc...way worth the 10-20$ difference in brand

4870 all the way...For that resolution, even a 512MB 4870 could do the job...
But preferably go for the 1GB or the GTX 260 core 216 which ever is cheaper...

Between those 2 cards, 4870's the more superior one.

Wait sorry, I did mean the GTX 260. But then, you'll all still pick the 4870, given its usually lower price right? :sweat:
