  1. I don't know the FPS details, but I would say the GTX460 is what I would consider the top choice for 1600 x 900. The 5770 is a nice budget card and will handle many games at your resolution, but the GTX 460 is the perfect choice for that resolution in my opinion especially with DirectX 11
  2. I would go with a GTX 460 for those graphically intensive games. It certainly won't be overkill; you probably won't get very good frame rates at maximum settings at your resolution. Here are some benchmarks:

  3. The HD 5770 is a really good GPU, the GTX 460 runs circles around the HD 5770 but costs ~$30(768mb)/$70(1gb) more.

    If you plan to use that resolution forever, the 5770 will be fine. But if you plan to upgrade to a better monitor/resolution, go with at least the GTX 460 (768mb) for not much more.

    I think about 5-10 fps. Note that these might make a big difference because it may push your performance below the 30fps threshold for the more graphically intensive games.
  5. You'll be fine with an hd 5770.
