At 1280x1024, is 5670 will be sufficient to play all the titles in medium to low settings? Thanks

I have an Q6600 quad with a 5770 1gb and I'm playing at 1680x1050 with no problems at all with high settings.

Stick to 5770, you will not regret it. And stick to your native resolution.

HD5770 will easily play all the games at 1440X900.
HD 5670 will easily play all the games at 1280X1024.

HD5670 will also play all the games at 1440X900 but some with lowered details.

Stick to your native resolution and also get a HD5770. It is a very nice card and last you a long time. :)

1.By 'easily play' do you meant @ everything maxed out?

High Resolution with low settings will give you better performance than lower (than native resolution) and maxed out settings as LCDs look a little blurred at anything below the native resolution.

Even HD5670 will max out many games at 1440X900.Both cards are good. Get the one that suits better for your budget.
Obviously,HD5770 will last you a little longer than HD5670 (before you think your card in inadequate for games) :)

Just to add some information to help you choose. I currently have a HD 5670 and am gaming at 1440 x 900 with a Core 2 Duo E6400 2.12Ghz.

I can play far cry 2 direct x10, "high" settings 4x AA at around 50 - 40 fps.

Left for dead 2 at max AA and settings at 60Fps

Bioshock at max settings and AA at around 60

It's not a bad card, I however am upgrading to a HD 5770 on my new build in a couple of months to make sure I can defo max out all games at my current resolution.

Hope that helped a bit.

Yes. My PC I built is, overall, a slightly above average setup. It runs well, but it is no monster set up by any means.

However, I do have a 5770 HD. I play BC2, CoD4, Dirt 2, Just Cause 2, etc. maxed out with no problems. i am very happy with it!

Actually I am planning to buy a new LCD too. I was actually wondering that which one would be better, should I buy a 19" (1440x900) and play games with high setting with 5670 or should I go for 20" (1600x1200) and play games with low settings. What do you thing, which one will give me better experience??

You probably mean 1680x1050(1600x1200 monitors are quite expensive) and the HD5770 should still be great for that resolution. It would be a good combination and you'll be able to play almost all games on high settings, most with AA as well. The card can even handle 1920x1080 fairly well.
For 1440x900 the HD5670 would be good and an HD5750 would be great.

1)What about 5670 for 1680x1050? 2)And even if I get a LCD with a native resolution of 1680x1050, can I make it play games at 1440x900 or 1280x1024 without any sort of blurring effect or image distortion?? 3) What is AA of AF? As you might already have noticed I know incredibly little about these things :(

On LCD monitors you will want to use the native resolution. You can lower the resolution but the image wont be as sharp and there will be distorted pixels. The HD5670 isn't really intended for 1680x1050 but it will still do ok if you are willing to use medium settings on the more intensive games from the last few years. In general I would want at least an HD5750/HD4850/GTS 250 for that resolution though and the HD5770 would be optimal.
AA is anti-aliasing and it mostly helps smooth out the jaggedness of lines/borders when gaming. This is more important at lower resolutions but can come with a large performance hit. Don't worry about AF as it doesn't tax video cards all that much.

1. I have a 9800GT which performs the same as 5670. I can play most of my games at max settings(1600X900). Crysis is an exception.
I would say 5670 will be good for that resolution too but in terms of LONGEVITY, HD5770 will last you longer.Can't say how long a 9800GT/5670 will last at that resolution.

2.Games will run properly on a lower than native resolution, but there will be a slight blurring effect. I don't see that a major problem. It still looks good in lower resolutions but YMMV.

3.AA(Anti- aliasing) makes the edges and lines smoother but taxes the GPU highly. It basically improves Graphic quality. Not necessary to turn it on all the time. And games look beautiful even without it :)

If you want to game at 1680 x 1050 then I really would suggest just getting a HD 5770 you really will not regret, I would say you will be able to play games at this resolution around medium settings. I'm upgrading to the HD 5770 just in case I do upgrade my monitor in the future. Bottom line is graphics quality will suffer using a HD monitor a HD 5670.
