hi all i need some help making a decision on buying a new GPU or a new monitor.... im using a 32" LCD with a 512mb 4870 and im really displeased with the performance im getting while playing games online (like crysis and bad company 2 beta are the worst). i can barely run BC2 on a 30 man server with out the frame rate dropping to like 35-40 FPS with a res of 1280x720 on low settings. is my monitor to large for a 512mb card or something?? i seem to have performances like this also with crysis. will a 32" LCD stress out a 512mb 4870 GPU just because of the shear size of the LCD? or is that not an issue, and i should just buy another 4870 and run it in crossfire??? thanks for the help!
Get a new monitor 22-24"with hi speed sinc, 2-5 ms. U have a monitor with 720p. For a screen that big as a PC gaming screen you are going to need 1080p. The reason for this is that at 720p the actual size of the pixels will be huge or you will have what is commonly known as "screen door" effect. 720p I wouldn't use for anything computer related at any distance, its just not enough pixels for computer work.
