  1. With that card though, you might be pushing it with a 24" monitor.....

    Thanks for your response! What card could pull off 1080p on a 24" monitor? I really dont like expensive cards...
  3. As a Crossfire solution then yes, it'll run just about everything out ther at high/max but a single HD5770 is a little weak for such a high resolution, I'd suggest you go for something a little further up the food chain: HD6850/HD5850/GTX460/GTX470.

    Monitors are a very subjective area; What is brilliant to one is a total midden to another. I would really advise you to make this purchase at a local store where you can see them working and judge for yourself what works for YOU. With a little luck they might allow you to trial it as well, so you can see exactly how it will look under your particular viewing conditions- Just be nice ;).

    Keep in mind, an ATI 5770 is not enough to game @ 1080p with high settings. :) You'll either want a second to crossfire, or you'll want to upgrade to something more powerful.

    Would this card pull off a 24" 1080p at high settings?

  6. Yes.

    To play @ 1080p with all high settings, I chose to go with the GTX 470 myself. The ATI 6850 and GTX 460 1GB are the same performance wise. Both would suit you well if you don't require the absolute fastest and highest details @ 1080p.

    Here's a great deal on the GTX 470 though.

    MSI GTX 470 $259 - $35 MIR = $224 [Keep in mind MSI rebates can take 1-2 months)

    The 'older' ATI 5850 is a good choice too, though it comes in a little bit slower than the GTX 470.

    The newer generation ATI 6870 is a great 1080p game player as well.

    Gigabyte ATI 6870 $ 249

    These would be my first picks, based purely on performance. Budget wise, the ATI 6850 and GTX 460 1GB are good performers for less money though!
