  1. no 900p is good resolution
    no need to buy 1080p monitor
    it will be a very minor upgrade!
    hope this helps!
  2. Also a higher resolution requires more graphics power than a lower one, at the same settings
  3. If you were planning on getting a new monitor I always recommend getting a 120Hz panel. The difference to gaming is staggering.

    I don't see much point in going from 900p@60Hz to 1080p@60Hz so stick with what you've got and save for now.
  4. i am getting the gtx 670 dcu ii top and i won't pay more money for that monitor cuz my aunt wants a new monitor and i may sell her mine and buy a new 1080p :D :D
    so 1st what do you think of this led ?? http://www.samsung.com/ph/consumer/monitor-peripherals-printer/monitor/led-monitor/LS22B300BS/XP-features

    2nd i think it's 60hz will it be bad with the gtx 670 ?? and will this upgrade reduce the performance of a gtx 670 card ??
  5. a 670 paired with a 900p is kinda overkill. i'd really do suggest getting either a cheaper GPU and keep the monitor, or get the 670 and get a 1080p, though not necessarily now.

    image quality will be a bit crisper from 900p to 1080p. as for 60hz vs 120hz, aside from 3D gaming, you'll get less blur going with 120hz, so i do suggest you save up for a 120hz 1080p monitor and buy one later.

    sorry but what do u mean with overkill , won't the card work with this res ?? and if i can't get a 120hz led right now i can only get the 60hz will games work badly or with bad quality ??

    the 670 is a card capable of playing games at 2560x1600 real well, if not at ultra settings then at high. getting one for a 1600x900 monitor is kind of a waste when you can spend a lot less for that resolution. if you insist on getting a 670, you may as well put it at it's full potential by getting a 1080p monitor, 60hz if you're impatient and don't have the money for a 120hz monitor, or 120hz if you can wait.
  8. hey,

    By overkill he means that the card is more than enough, in fact you don't need such a powerful GPU. The card will run fine, and games will look great, and the 60hz monitor will be fine, and games will look great. The gtx 670 is capable of running games on maximum settings with the monitor you have, but you could get a cheaper card and still get the same results like a hd7850. Whats your budget?

    hope this helps!
  9. You will notice quite some big difference. At least I did when I went from 1680x1050 to 1920x1080.
  10. yeah you definitely will see a difference going from 900p to 1080p. You will not need a 120hz monitor to enjoy your gtx670 at it highest potential unless of course you plan on gaming in 3D, with the exception of slightly less blur which won't be that noticeable in the first place.

    If you are satisfied with your current monitor then you could save some money and get a cheaper card ex. HD7870 or a 7950.... just my thoughts
