Tags: Graphics Cards Monitors Graphics Last response: November 27, 2009 10:07 PM in Graphics & Displays Share duskichu November 27, 2009 9:17:15 PM Yeh, There's probably a few threads about this but I couldn't find many by searching, and the ones I did find were fairly outdated. as the title suggests, I am looking for the best card for a 19" monitor. My specs at the moment: AMD Phenom II x4 940 Stock Clocks 9600GT 512mb 4GB Kingston DDR2 800Mhz Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 Motherboard Corsair HX Series 650w Psu More about : card monitor hunter315 a c 196 U Graphics card a b C Monitor November 27, 2009 9:19:35 PM what resolution is your 19" monitor? A 4870 would be a significant improvement over the 9600GT and would be able to play everything on high even if yours is 1680x1050. duskichu November 27, 2009 9:24:09 PM Mine's a fairly low resolution, 1440x900. so the 4870 would be a good choice for me then? If so, the 512MB or 1GB Model?

Bluescreendeath a b U Graphics card November 27, 2009 9:30:27 PM yep, hunter is correct. Also take into consideration a 5770 - performs the same as the 4870 and costs slightly more, but supports dx11 and runs a bit cooler/uses less energy. duskichu November 27, 2009 9:37:10 PM I might actually go down the 5770 route, seeing as I'm running Windows 7. ubernoobie November 27, 2009 10:02:59 PM +1 for 5770 since it comsumes half the power in idle and about 2/3 power in load of a 4870 while giving 80-90% performance of 4870 duskichu November 27, 2009 10:07:36 PM Thanks for all the input guys, I think Im gonna go with the HD 5770.
