Solved Which Vid Card should I buy with this monitor? Tags: Graphics Cards Monitors ATI Graphics Product Last response: February 22, 2010 11:03 PM in Graphics & Displays Share JohnieReb February 13, 2010 2:52:38 AM Hey all, I have this monitor. http://www.viewsonic.com.pe/support/crtmonitors/a91fplu... Im looking at buying either a ATI 5770, 2 ATI 5770's Crossfired, or a single ATI 5850. I have a I7 920 CPU with the ASRocks X58 extreme Mobo. Which Vid Card should I get and why? I can get 2 5770's for $20 more than the 5850 and they out perform the 5850 quite well. Would anything more than one 5770 be overkill? I built my system to last at least 3 years and who's to say I wont get a new monitor within that time?

I can easily game in 1280x1024. If those are the resolutions you will be gaming at then just get the HD5770 as it will already be massive overkill and still be quite good even for your max res.
