  3. For that resolution:
    Passable: HD6750, GTS 450
    Not bad: HD6770, GTX 550 Ti
    Good: HD6850, GTX 460
    Very Good: HD6870, GTX 560
    Excellent: HD6950, GTX 560 Ti

    Is this just using individual cards? Or is this with sli setup?
  6. Individual cards, dual cards total different ball game.
  7. You don't need SLI/Crossfire for that resolution.
