HD 5850 + Asus 24-inch Wide Gaming monitor

Hello experts

I have bought the Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5850 Extreme 1024MB GDDR5 http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-259-SP graphics card for my rig and now I'm thinking of buying a Asus 24-inch VH242H Wide Gaming LCD TFT Monitor. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-24-inch-VH242H-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B001TH8OYW/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1307906794&sr=1-1

The question is will my graphics card be able to handle the 24 inch monitor? Will I be able to play games and 3D modelling applications at a reasonable performance?


Thank you

  1. It'll be fine for games. See following reviews for some benchmarks; 1920 x 1200 would be the closet to 1080p resolution. Note that the benchmarks are based on an Intel Core i7-975 Extreme Edition processor.

    As for 3D modelling... no idea.
  2. Thanks. I will be using a AMD Phenom 2 X6 Black Edition 3.2GHz processor.
