Hey,

I was wondering what could be the best resolution for my graphics card.

1920x1080
1600x900
1366x768

I was thinking of getting a 20 inch screen that has a native resolution of 1600x900.
What do you think?

nothing wrong with 1600x900, it will still look amazing, but the 5770 is a little dated now, and probably wont be able to do AA or AF in games nowadays even at that lower res.

1600x900 and below.

Guys . You're just so wrong.
Buy the 1920 x 1080.The higher the resolution the more detailed the image.And the HD 5770 has got plenty of power.Yes it's not a high end card and it can't really play games at their maximum settings with AA and all that stuff but the tradeoffs from buying a lower res screen are just not worth it.

of course, if they are all similar price, go for the 1920x1080 monitor if you can. But I would recommend gaming in 1600x900 on the heavy games. light games can do 1920x1080 albeit you wont get as much of a wow factor.

*No need to choose.
(may wish to copy this)

my advice is to get a 1920x1080 monitor of 22". Text will look sharper.

When it comes to GAMES, you can simply choose the resolution and quality settings that scale best, such as 1600x900 and MEDIUM etc. Use FRAPS when tweaking.

I recommend you download RadeonPro and use the HALF VSYNC method (can force games to 30FPS to help avoid tweaking). Tweak a game with VSYNC OFF until you get about 35FPS most of the time then force the HALF VSYNC method on. Obviously if a game can run at 60FPS full quality you want that.

TIPS:
1) At 1920x1080 for desktop you may want to SCALE things up slightly (between 10 and 25%) in Windows. Google on how if you don't know.

2) Use CTRL + Mouse Scroll to resize web pages (will remember) so text isn't too small.

3) Disable Advanced Video features (flesh tones etc) or video may not look good.

4) K-Lite Standard or Full Codec Pack and use the included Media Player. (32-bit even for 64-bit Windows. Only need the 64-bit K-Lite for Windows Media CENTER which nobody really uses.)

5) Monitor must be on ASPECT scaling or else 4x3 resolution games will stretch.

6) Catalyst Control Center may default to a too-bright color setting (faces are reddish). I forget the option, but I think it starts when an "E" and is about four letters. When you check it all the color changes (reds aren't as bright). This drastically affects videos as well as the stupid advanced video settings.

7) Find and install the monitor drivers if they aren't added automatically. If your monitor shows as "generic" they aren't installed (resolution settings page or Device Manager.)

I was running 1920 x 1200 on a 5770 for a while(The plan was just media play back[long story I had a spare 5770], but ended up doing quite a bit of gaming on that card). As long as you do not mild dropping some of the more demanding details, it worked quite well with the i5 750 in my media center.

Many lighter games ran fine with full or near full detail as well.

To this day, that was the best value for a video card ever :)  (IMO)

Thx for the help,

So a 22' 1080p monitor would be a good choice?
Of course 1600x900 is quite cheaper but it feels like it lacks something.
Another advantage of having a 1080p screen, is the flexibility with resolutions.

This is an important decision, since it's a long term investment. I want to be sure I make the right decision.

PS: I rather play a bit lower resolution but with higher settings than the other way around.

Thank you all for your help, I'll go with a 21 inch 1080p screen.

I have a 5770. In terms of what resolution to run games, anything new, I have to drop to 1400x900 or 1280x800 to use higher quality settings. I can't really run ultra. Anything from 2010 or older I can run on 1680x1050 and highest settings.

I'd still get whatever monitor you want, but you'll be scaling to lower resolutions for smooth gameplay.

But I agree, 5770 was and is one of the best bang-for-the-buck graphics cards.

You shouldn't buy a monitor and play on a non=native resolution unless the resolution is a fourth of the native resolution (IE 720p on a 2560x1440 display). That hurts picture quality a lot. A 1600x900 display will show 1600x900 much better than a 1080p display will.

If the goal is the best quality in gaming, then I recommend a 1600x900 display. If the goal is decent gaming quality with the best quality outside of gaming, then I recommend a 1920x1200 display and if that's not an option, then 1080p is a decent compromise.
