Nah, the 4890 will handle most games at that resolution (obviously not crysis on very high), but it should play all other games fine. I'd say in about a year you could switch out your 4890 for a nice dx11 card.

Hey renji,

I have an HD 4890 like you and I am using an Acer X213H (the H213H's, above, brother) and it runs everything at its native resolution @ 1920x1080 fine. When games become a bit more demanding you can add another HD 4890 if your motherboard has CrossFire support, which will net you a bit over HD 5870 performance, albeit without DirectX 11.

I am using a Phenom II X3 720 @ 3.2 GHz which is about the same performance as an E8400, if not a bit above in games that can take advantage of the extra core with 4GB DDR3 1600 and Windows 7 x64. Unfortunately I don't play WoW but I'd guess it could max it out. Aion I hear is a bit more demanding, but I am sure it will do 1920x1080 fine. COD6 will run around 60-70 FPS with full settings @ 1920x1080.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Graphics Performance Benchmarks: AA/AF Enabled

Keep in mind they're using an i7 so our FPS will be a little lower.

Non-native resolution is just a lower resolution. It'll look worse, but not any different than if another monitor had it as its native resolution -- it's hard to explain I guess or maybe I'm just trying to over-explain it. Regardless:

Acer X213HBid 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor - $169.99 ($109.99 with your $60)

That seems to be my exact monitor.

in that search are the top 3 ones any good the asus, the viewsonic, or the sceptre?


The Sceptre seems to be the best looking at pure technical specifications, then the ViewSonic, then the ASUS.

The Sceptre has a higher dynamic contrast ratio (40,000 as compared to 20,000), lower response time (2ms vs 5ms -- not GTG), and it weighs less.

I'm currently on Aion right now and so is my friend. He runs Aion on 1920x1080 with a 4870 1gb just fine. Handles it like butter.

I'm running the 4890 myself and it runs it very nicely with everything max, except i have my AA at 4x b/c I really don't see a diff. between 4x and 8x :)

or the Acer H233Hbmid, what ever one would be good, w.e one will be great, though the acer models dont have as good saturation as the asus, but it has better looking blacks and whites. Acer one also uses touch sensitive controls if your into that.

The Sceptre is technically superior. There's no reason to not get it unless you just don't trust the brand name.

yea, try looking up some reviews for it, it may have bad colouring or not many settings to play with. It also seems to not provide an hdmi and dvi cable. And to be honest they are all 1,000:1 contrast ratio the 50,000:1 or 20,000:1 really doesnt make a difference
