Hi guys, so I recently purchased a MSI GTX 660 TF 2GB (OC edition) video card, and am confused about the monitor size. I can choose either between a 20' Samsung (1600 x 900) or a 22'' (1920 x 1080), but concerned if the 22'' will be too demanding for the card. I'm looking to keep my set up for at least 3-4 years. I don't mind lowering the AA a bit, but want to play at high/highest settings for the years to come (as long as it looks good with good framerates) Help me out guys, which would be the good choice?
If you live by a Microcenter they have a $400 Auria 2560x1440. I just got one last weekend and it is great. 40 fps on that is much more enjoyable than 60+ fps on 1920x1080.
EDIT: I agree about his card struggling, but the point I was trying to make is higher resolution is always better. I have a 7870, by the way, and so far so good.
Though I would value a better monitor over a better graphics card. The graphics card is going to be outdated within 2-3yrs, that monitor will continue being useful until it literally breaks.
Besides, you can always run the game in 1080p.
