  1. come on somebody give me something
  2. one of the first 2 Asus ones on your list. and whether you want 3d or not. There is no point of getting a dell ultrasharp 2560x1600 cause 1gb vram of your gpu wouldn't be able to handle it.

    I ran a single 5870 on my dual Dell 2560x1600s for 3 years. Played Crysis on medium high.
  4. Check out the Catleaps: http://www.overclock.net/t/1225919/yamakasi-catleap-monitor-club

    A buddy of mine bought two of them: they're gorgeous and they're cheap and if they fail, you can afford to buy another one.
  5. i really like the dell ultrasharp, what about the 24 inch 1920x1200?

    Well , my gtx 670 direct cu II top only manages to get around 60fps at 1080p maxed out crysis. So I assumed it'd be hard for a hd5870 to handle that kind of thing especially with dual 2560x1600. You have to sacrifice some of the eye candies which, in my book, makes a lot of difference.
  7. Increasing the resolution has less effect on VRAM usage than you might think. VRAM usage is more about input texture sizes, so a 1GB 5870 will do poorly compared to a 2GB 670 in modded Skyrim for example, but that is true at any resolution. A 5870 is slower than a 670 at high resolution more because of fill rate, shader count, shader speed, etc. but the OP has at least partially compensated for that by using Crossfire. At worst, the higher resolution and lesser VRAM will require you to turn down the AA level, but because the resolution is higher to begin with, the anti-aliasing is less necessary.

    I'm not claiming a 5870 is as good as a 670 or that 1GB of VRAM is as good as 2, but I'm also saying 2 5870s can handle 2560x1600 resolution and since the OP already has the cards...
