:hello:  I was thinking about connecting my Rig to my 42 inch 1080p Full HD TV.

Just wanted to ask, if MSI GTX 660 Twin Frozr 2GB can handle that big screen at good fps (min. 30)? {Low-mid graphic settings allowed, but should be at full resolution}
And also what will be the resolution, 1920x1080 or something even larger?

It can output 1920x1080. I have no idea what games you want to play with it, but that card will be decent.

The only thing that the GPU cares about (regarding a monitor) is its resolution. Since it's a 1080p monitor (doesn't matter if it's a 60'' or 20'' screen) it will have a resolution of 1920x1080 which the GTX 660 is geared towards so you should be able to push max settings in pretty much every game at that resolution.

The GPU has no idea what size screen it is connected to nor does it care. It will output whatever resolution it is capable of and spread out the dot to cover the entire screen. That's why bigger screens need to be viewed from further away.

ONe thing not mentioned here, if you have issues with stuff going off screen you'll need to go into your aspect ratio and set it to "Just Scan, 16:9" I've had that issue on a couple TVS. I don't own a montior i use only TVS.

Thanks for telling, ah thats nice if its 1080p because my card is very good at that resolution.
I'll be playing BF3, BO2, MOH Warfighter, Ghost recon FS, Sleeping dogs, Far cry 3, crysis 2 & 3, NFS MW, NFS the run (And almost every First & Third person shooter and racing games) and many other games too.
