GTS 250 or 4850 will max almost every game at 1680x1050

GTX260 or 4890 if you wanna future proof a bit.

yes it does, first off all the 5xxx ati cards are new so they will be much fassters than the old 4xxx for the same price, they are directx11 compatible the 4xxx are not.
the better the card you get now the longer it will last b4 having to upgrade it later :bounce:

everytime some1 says overkill i laugh ....there is no over kill in pc parts

what about in 2 years time with the new game tech

when i buy i graphic card (as i have done for 24 years)they last 3-4 years before upgrading for me ..u have to think ahead when buying pc parts.... true the 5750 is ok as well

Hmm... for 1600*900 the 5750 or 5770 are good choices! But as SirKillAlot said. buy the best you can afford, the games in the future are not less demanding... But those two middle range versions mentioned are best in balance with your monitor choice. IMHO.

hi guys,

just thought i'd add a question to this thread. i currently have a 20-inch monitor with a 1600x900 resolution.

would my HD 5750 512mb adequate for gaming at this resolution generally?

the only game i play is Starcraft 2 and I have a Core i3-530. thanks! :-)

Yes, I believe so. although you wont necessarily have Ultra settings in all your games.

Thanks, decode. That's what Starcraft 2 defaults to (High).

Ultra is above High I believe, so you should still get high settings fine.
