More about : 1200 1300 1000 build sosofm January 7, 2012 10:23:33 AM Lets say the next things : for that monitor resolution you don't need 580gtx , its a waist of money and its overkill. 6950 or 560Ti is more than enough on that resolution.Its better to buy an 570 gtx and a fullHD monitor. M4RBUX January 7, 2012 10:56:25 AM But how will a 570 run with future games?
