Either of those cards will drive either monitor OK. Don't worry. Just buy the one you like the best....

zdbc13 is right.

I personally would get the 27" monitor and a 7870 to start. Provided, if the 27" monitor is 1080p because if it's higher than 1080p, you might need to look at a 7950 or higher to get enjoyable frame rate and image quality.

if you have the money, you can always upgrade, but i don t think you would lose much if you stood to your original 22". It depends on your budget

I was just looking at all the cards you have mentioned. I know it's probably too expensive. The 7950 is supposed to overclock better but both cards are good.

I have a 2560x1440 monitor and a Sapphire 7870. They work fine together. My card overclocks to 1200/1200 on stock voltage and I get 40-60 fps in Borderlands 2 maxed out (except physx). My point is no, you do not need a 7950 or higher for 2560x1440.
