GPU for 2560x1440 monitor

I'm building a M-ITX computer with a 3770K cpu. The case and motherboard have room for one dual slot gpu. I need it to power a single 27" 2560x1440 display. I plan on playing fairly high end games. I'm looking for suggestions on GPU's that are powerful enough to maintain high frame rates on very high/ultra settings.

Thanks for the suggestions in advance.

  1. Get a hd 7950 and overclock it.
    Or a GTX 670. Both of the cards require about 500watts to run.
  2. The 7970 is the strongest single gpu out there, and you could play most games at that res. on ultra I bet. You could also look at the 7990 or the 690.
  3. I also recommend the 7970.

    most HD 7990 and GTX 690 take up 3 slots and the user has 2 slots. If he is using a micro ATX case he might even have space for a HD 7850
  5. It doesn't really sound like you have a lot of choices - you want high/ultra settings at a very high resolution, which pretty much limits you to the very top end- a 670, 680, 7950 or 7970. You probably can get any of those to work just fine and at least with the reference coolers those all would fit into say, a Cooler Master Elite 120 or Bitfenix Prodigy, which I assume are similar to what you have.
  6. Main dual slot 7990 I can think of, but good luck finding one.

  7. if you use a standard mobo you might get better options
  8. Thanks for all the suggestions. Length of card isn't an issue. I'm trying to stuff all of this into a Silverstone SG-08 M-ITX case. My current GPU is a 580. But I didn't think it would hold up on the new monitor. The 690 would probably be best, but that $1000 price tag is rather nasty. I'll probably pickup the 7970.

    Thanks to all.
