hi guys,

I have posted about this before.

I bought a acer b223hu lcd monitor that has a default res of 2048x1152.
I guess to user both 4870x2s and make them work (squeeze all the performance out of them) I need a larger display?

I dont want to spend a grand on an lcd..
any suggestions?

is 30" necessary?? something that size might hurt my eyes!

Using a higher resolution screen is not "necessary" you will just be able to unlock smoother game play/FPS with bigger screens.

What I mean is if you only had one 4870 then a 1920x1080 screen would have great FPS but with a 2560x1600 screen it would be laggy all over.

A 4870x2 will have much better FPS on a 1920x1080 screen over a single 4870 but will have great 2560x1600 performance. Conversely if you only had a 1440x900 screen then a 4870x2 is "overkill" and I would say save your money and get a single 4870.

If you already have 2 4870X2's then you will probably need 2560x1600 with AA to stress that, which will need a 30 inch LCD which would be around $1000.

That 2048x1152 screen would be good, If you can afford it your two 4870x2s would be able to handle a 2560x1600 screen, but that is expensive.

That wouldn't go any higher than 1920x1200, which is pretty much the same as 2048x1152.
If you would buy 2 4870X2's then well...

24 inch to 28 inch are all 1920x1200/1920x1080 displays, only that the pixels are bigger, there are LCD's like NEC's that have a weird measurement (29.8 inch, 2560x1600).
There's nothing standard between 1920x1200 and 2560x1600.

If you have a 5-series you could get several 24 inchers but at your budget & system I would stick with the current build.
