I would like to upgrade my 22inch monitor which is 1680 x 1050 to a 27 inch monitor at 1920 x 1080 , My graphics card is a ATI 6850. Could anyone tell me what kind of FPS hit (GAMING) i will take when upgrading to this resolution (1920*1080).

Currently My 6850 handles all the latest games like a champ and I'm not sure I want to sacrifice a huge loss of frames per second for a larger screen, If thats the case. Any opinions or advice is welcome...

It is not going to be a huge loss or anything like that but it will be a small enough hit that you will be able to accept it. There may be some games that will show more of a hit , like BF3 and Metro 2033 and Crysis 2.

BF3-- on ultra setting

1280x1024--33 fps
1600x1200--25 fps
1920x1080--22 fps

Crysis 2

1280x1024--42 fps
1600x1200--31 fps
1920x1080--26 fps

So in going from 1680x1050 to 1920x1080 you might see a 5 to 8 fps hit at the ultra setting.

Thanks for the reply inzone, 3-5 FPS hit is nothing but creeping up on 10 would probably be noticeable, to me at least. I think I'm going to go for the 27 inch. Worst case scenario is I OC my 6850, Haven't really had a need to do it as of yet but maybe that would make up the difference if it is a noticeable one.

The games that I listed are very intense games for the video cards and would therefore be a worst case senario , other less demanding games there would be less noticeable of a hit because the fps would be high enough to absorb the difference. What I nean by that is that on a game where you get 30 to 40 fps a 5 to 8 fps would be more noticeable then on a game getting 80 to 90 fps and the performance hit was 10 to 15 fps.

you have to take inzone's estimates lightly. Did you look at his hardware ? is yours anywhere near that ? Look at the processor.

i went from 1600 to 1900 and there was a noticeable difference depending on the game and the settings being run at. A 1gig card will be useless even when making sacrifices you think you normally shouldn't have to make. Having said that I have no regrets going bigger.

Morgan 2 questions.

1. What is your GPU?

2. When you made the jump from 1600 to 1900 on a bigger monitor how did the graphics compare. Obviously you gained more resolution which should provide a better picture but did the jump in size actually negate a upgrade ? I guess what I am asking is will a 27 inch 1900 rez look superior to a 22 inch 1650 rez graphically for gaming?

I'm guessing you mean the AMD Radeon HD 6850, cause ATI was bought looooonnnnggg ago. Don't know where you pulled their name from. 6850 is one of the finest and best performance/cost ratio cards out there, good job getting it. Right now my 22" 1680x1050 monitor handles LoL at 60 fps no problem with integrated graphics. So with any dedicated card at all you got no problem.

first one was an MSI gtx260 lightning. Then upgraded to a 5850 ati. Then upgraded to a 6950 2gig card.

The 5850 was okay to a point. The 1gig frame buffer sucked and reverted back to the Lightning because of the extra ram. ( 1792gb ) The 6950 plays everything good so far and recently cross fired it.

The comparison was noticeable. ( i went from 16x9 to 16x10 ) It did take the extra horsepower of a bigger card to run stuff more smoothly, especially when cranking up the goodies and also when running DX10 and 11.

I've said this a lot and always get chastised for it....... 1gig of vram above 1600 res is useless. Even making sacrifices there never seems to be enough ram on the card and it spits and sputters off loading to the HD.

A higher end CPU does help here but not always enough.

Best bet is for you to make the monitor upgrade and decide for yourself. The 6850 will work but you'll soon see what the limitations are.

Just wanted to give a quick update for anyone in the future who may have the same concerns. Well i made the jump to 27 inch and I can tell you the 6850 handles 1920x1080 like a champ. Only experiencing minimal lossess in fps, I would say somewhere in the 2-5 range, Yeah not really much of a difference.


Thanks for all the replys guys.
