Card to max ANY game @ only 1280 x 1024

My friend wants to play a couple of games on his new computer, which I set up for him. I hooked him up with one of the new Ivy-Bridge i3s, and now he's looking for a graphics card which can max any game he wants to play on his current monitor, which is at a resolution of 1280 x 1024. Although I have advised him to get a new monitor, he wants a card that can provide at least ~35 fps on modern games on maximum settings with all the bells and whistles. Suggestions?

:love:

  1. 7770 would be overkill at those resolutions although good for futureproofing really means in case you upgrade the monitor.

    6670 would be enough to max at that resolutions at 35fps.
  2. Why not get a 7770!?

  4. nvidia 650.
  5. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162124

    Will max out any game at that resolution and any future games to come.
  6. but in all honesty i would recommend the 660ti because in teh future you can just through in another 660ti and sli them about two years down teh road.

    we will have dx 13 before that is needed at this resolution

    a 7770 can max most games @720P, which is far more than OP's res, i think a 6670 would be more fitting


    What..? 720P is less than 1280x1024 its 1280x720....
    @ OP. Grab a GTX 560 (Non-Ti) or HD 6870.
  9. To the retards saying a GTX 660ti etc... You need a basic knowledge of GPU's and not shout out randomly "Get a GTX 660".
    A HD 7750 will last him 3 years on max with ease.

    the 7750 wont last as long, we still have a long while till DX11 is over with anyways

    "retards" is kind of harsh is it not? this is an opinion based question, and many opinions we're submitted, so what makes your opinion so much better than ours?
