Hello Toms Hardware,
I am looking a buying a monitor with a max resolution of 1366x768, and I was wonder what graphics card would be the best choice to play games at this resolution. I was looking at the XFX 5770, but Is that to much? Thanks for you answers

I guess a better way to ask this question is, how does the 1366x768 resolution fall into play when compared to the graphics card charts used on tomshardware? That way, I have a good idea of how graphics cards will work under this resolution.

gives some good future proofing for ya, since the res is only 1366x768

with 350w psu, I think a 4770. Its GDDR5, 40nm, and energy efficient, and maxes games at that resolution, and oc it and its as good as a 4850!

so chevymaster, you think the 5770 would be over kill. Therefore, I should just get the 4770 ... or maybe a 4750.. if i can even find one lol?

I just answered a very similar question so pay attention...

1366x768 is not a widely supported resolution because 1366 is not divisible by 8. It is possible the video card can support that resolution, but you will probably have to use a refresh rate lower than 60Hz. Check if there is a download pdf manual for that monitor.

Based on a little research, it seems nVidia card provides some support for that resolution, but not much from AMD.

If all else fails, you can try a program call PowerStip to force that resolution. It's free to try, but you will have to buy it for $30 to continue using it.

Personally I would avoid that 1366x768 resolution and stick to something more standard like 1680x1050.

Then for the PC get an ATI HD4850 which will be more than enough to power games at that resolution. The HD5770 is about the same as a HD4870 in terms of performance. The HD4850 is a good budget card to get now, especially if you're not planning on playing at any ridiculous resolutions.

dude 4770, I think thats the best for your psu,

i have a 4770 hooked to my 42" 1080p hdtv. it plays cod waw with max settings at +50 fps and it even plays crysis at 1080p on high settings at +30fps if it were running at 720p more than likely the resulation you would be gaming at would be very overkill like 150-200 fps. go with a 4670 for like $65. will be more than enough for you. and it will run with most oem psu. its does not even require a 6 pin power cable.
