Hi, I just recently purchased the XFX Radeon HD 5670 1GB DDR5 graphic card and it works great! However, I have an HP 2009m monitor that has a maximum resolution of 1600x900 60hz. So, my question is..what is a good monitor out there that would be good and help me get everything out of this graphic card??? I would also love to keep the price at a minimum of $200.00...if possible..THANKS!

Computer Specs:

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 140W Quad-Core Processor

750 GB SATA 3G (3.0 Gb/sec) 7200 rpm
XFX HD-467X-ZDF2 Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card (what I'm looking to replace)

as is the 5670 would just barely run most modern games at high on a 1600x900 monitor so save your $200 and keep your monitor, which is very good one.

Yes, the 5770 is better card. If you could get something even better then I would recommend a new monitor to you. The 5670 will not runs smoothly at a resolution of 1920x1080.

a 5830 would be a better long term buy at the moment over the 5770 with the recent price drop, and would provide much better framerates at 1080p res, it can also overclock to the 5850 level, which makes it a good buy at the moment, in the uk anyway at least.
