Good monitor res for 570 GTX?

Hey, guys. I have a GTX 570, and I'm currently running a 19" 1440x900 monitor. I'm looking to get a new monitor, 'cause this one is 5+ years old, and it was never good in the first place.

I heard that lower resolutions can take the pressure off the GPU, but add it on to the CPU. So, with my specs, would it make more sense to get a full 1080p monitor, or does it matter? What I mean is, will games run about as good (if not better) with a slightly higher resolution?

SPECS:
GTX 570
Quad-core i5-2500k @ 3.3 GHz
8 GB memory (forgot the speed, but it's pretty fast)
Windows 7 64-bit

Let me know if you need any more information. Thanks!

    Yea a 1080p monitor will be fine. It is the norm now so its hard to find a lower resolution monitor. You can always just turn down the resolution if a game is giving you trouble. You won't see much of a difference in performance between those reolutions

    As for you higher resolution question. The game will look better in higher resolutions, but you will get lower fps.
  2. GTX570 still have plenty of performance for 1080p. just don't go crazy with AA setting.
