i have a alienware x51 with the following specs:

Windows 8 64bit
Intel® Core™ i7-3770 (3.40GHz, 8MB L3 Cache, 4C)
1.5GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 660
8192MB (2x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 Dual Channel Memory
1 TB – SATA II, 7 200 v/min
DVD+/-RW (Read/Write)

my question is, will this computer be able to handle heavy games like battlefield 3 on ultra with a 27 inch moniter at 2540x1440 resolution. i have found a good moniter at a discounted price, ASUS PB278Q 27" that im thinking of bying but wanted to be sure that it fits my needs.

nope. your GPU is too weak.

You'll need at least a 7950/7970 or a GTX 670/680 to play ultra at that resolution. And also need to overclock your CPU too.

you're going to have a hard time playing ultra settings on that high resolution even if you could get that resolution. stick with 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 max. that way you get the best price on monitors, too

thanks for the quick answer! if i go with 1920x1080 at 27 inches, will the gameplay "look good". i mean is 1920x1080 resolution to little for a 27 inch ?
should i just go with 1920x1080 at 24 inches instead?

Ultra isn't that important as resolution. So toning down your settings for a higher resolution is better than a lower resolution for ultra settings IMO. You should get the monitor and upgrade video card later.


would it be able to handle it at high settings

you're not going to see a difference because you aren't seeing the difference in pixels on the monitors without a good magnifying glass.
