Currently running a single GTX 470 and my new monitor is set to come in today.

HannsG HZ281HPB 27.5" 1920x1200

Will it be fine to run that monitor playing games like WoW, CoD, Bioshock 2?

It should run those games just fine, aslong as your CPU is decent. If it makes you feel better I run a 9800GTX+ on my 50" plazma (1920x1080), and it runs everything better than I could expect!

I play L4D, black ops, Assins creed 2, alian swarm, ect. Max resolution, 8-16x AA, and all the other settings maxed out. Although I do offload physix to the CPU (quad core q9400 @ 2.5 Ghz), so that helps. I would highly recommend downloading the EVGA Precision utility and set up the Auto Fan control, which works wonderfully, it keeps my GPU at a decent temp!

Best of luck!

It isn't the physical size of the display that makes a difference in performance, rather it is the number of pixels you are manipulating. Whether a 27.5 inch monitor or a 50 inch HDTV, 1920x1080 on either is the same number of pixels.

BTW, the 470 will perform great at 1920x1200. Good luck!

I run a GTX 470 @ 1920x1080 and usually see 60FPS or better with most games. :) 

I've been playing Alien Vs Predator with DX11 & Tessellation on with 50+ FPS as an average. Also play Bad Company 2 at 60FPS or better, Assassin's Creed 2 plays well, L4D2 plays extremely well.

WoW, CoD, and Bioshock 1 & 2 should be an absolute breeze with a GTX 470.

GTX 470 = awesome top-end performance, perfect for a large screen monitor at high resolutions.
