As the title states, i want to get the ati radeon HD 5670 graphics card, but am insure of a good monitor resolution in order to work the game well (sims 3). I went to display properties and saw screen resolution, but i seem to only have the following choices:

800 by 600
1024 by 768
1280 by 1024

Is this bad as i heard it can cause graphical problems when playing the game?

also, sorry if i posted this question in the worng place, but i was unsure were else to post.

thanks for the help

What processor do you have? When you are playing on lower resolutions games tend to strain your processor a bit more.

You use the resolution that your monitor is, you don't choose what you want. lol

If your monitors native resolution is 1280x1024, then that's what you use.
