Which video card for 1680*1050?

Recommended Posts

I am looking to purchase a 20" monitor with a maximum resolution of 1680*1050 as indicated in the thread title above. My question is which graphics card should I get: GTX 260 Core 216 or GTX 275? Since I plan to game on that resolution, I am somewhat concerned that the GTX 275's power may be wasted.

 

Thank you in advance.

GTX 260 for sure!

 

I have an HD4850 which is considerably slower, and handles every game at around 60fps or higher all high settings (except Crysis).

would go with the gtx 260 core 216, unless you have extra money and want something stronger in case you were to need it later.

+1 for GTX 260.

 

I've also a 20" monitor @ your stated resolution, and I game w/everything cranked, except for AA. I'm sure I could probably turn AA on, but I dont notice jagged lines when I'm being shot at. :lol:

If you aren't a tech junkie who upgrades every 3 months or so, go with the GTX 275 (if you can afford it).
