Ok another Question, on my main gaming system, yes i have 3 PCs see picture


The specs are 1090t stabily OCd to 4GHz, 8 GB DDR3 ram @1600mhz, Windows 7 64bit, 120gb OCZ vertex SSD & 1TB Smasung F1 data HDD PLUS an Asus GeForce GTX 580 DirectCU II 1536MB GDDR5

I am thinking of upgradeing my 24" Dell Ultrasharp monitor (1920x1200res) to a 27" Dell Ultrasharp monitor (2560x1440res)

What i want to now know before i do upgrade is that will my system run all modern games maxed out at the new resolution ?

Nice setup!

I don't think you'll be completely maxing out and staying above 60fps, but this review should give you a good idea with many different titles:

Your FPS measurements will be pretty close to the 2560x1600 numbers.

It's definitely worth the purchase. I have two of them in my system. Look at the FPS numbers in the review I listed earlier. My numbers were just about identical to those numbers when I had one card and they match up with the SLI review now that I have two. Great performance even with just one card, though.

Right. The monitor resolutions listed in the review will give you a good idea of the performance.
