How about:
MSI R5770 HAWK 1GB?
My monitor is not that great. 6850 would be a waste I guess.
Anyways, thanks for this option.

the 5770 hawk is almost the same price as that 6850. the 6850 would be a perfect card for that resolution, you would max out most of the games.

i dont see a reason why not to go with the 6850, it wont be a waste :)
