You ask this the day AFTER Cyber Monday? Check if newegg and tigerdirect still have their deals going. They had some nice cheap monitors for sale.

That video card will max everything at your current res will not even get close to maxing everything at 1080p that would take a 660ti or 7950.

It doesn't suck...it is actually good for 1080p gaming.

I'm not worrying about the card, If I upgrade o 1080 I will buy another 7870 and crossfire , good solution right ? :D

It will be overkill for that resolution, the crossfire setup.

Just get an ips 1080p monitor and play with that card, it will be fine.

^The reason he's telling you to get an ips monitor instead of the usual TN panel is because ips monitors have a slower refresh rate. This is easier on the graphics card, but means there's a fair bit of imput lag - something you really don't want if you're gaming.

That being said, why upgrade? Isn't it better to max out any game at your resolution?

What? he can max out much games out there @1080p...others with less AA, and a bit oc it will do.
In my opinion it is worthy of the upgrade, i can't stand those low resolutions, and at 1080p you'll notice the difference.
Like i said go with a ips monitor 1080p those from asus are like 5ms and they're cheap (the link i gave was at 122$ a 23" screen)

Newegg has the Dell S2340 under $200. I bought it for $159 last week. It's a 24" IPS 1080p.

As for the GPU, I doubt you'll need to crossfire at 1080p. If you feel like you need some more performance those 7800 series are great overclockers. An overclocked 7850 can be almost as fast as a 7950 in some games. Just get one with a pretty decent cooler.

WRONG! The 7850 games very well in 1080p and the 7870 GHz will max out ANY game.

I don't understand nobody except a misinformed user said that you wont be able to play @1080p with good frame rates maxout...

That is maxout with AA enable and without oc...and with older catalyst drivers(expect better performance).
