Ask ! Get the answer subduck9 December 29, 2012 2:04:07 PM Yeah I figured. People keep telling me to get a 670. At this resolution the 660 is almost too much, as you're saying. Score 0 Best solution rolli59 a c 850 à CPUs December 29, 2012 2:08:20 PM Yes a 650 or 650Ti would handle that resolution fine. But if you plan on upgrading display to 1080p then 660-670 would be great to have. The CPU can handle the strongest GPU's on the market.
