Any day now my new monitor will be delivered. I'm switching from a 20" 1600x1200 to 27" for gaming in glorious 2560x1440 resolution.
Currently I have a HD5850 (1 Gig VRAM), which was one of those wonder cards when released 3.5 years ago. Running 1600x1200 is no problem and temperatures are fairly stable at 29-36°C. But I'm afraid it cannot handle DDO in high resolution.
I did a search on the forums but most people that state using a resolution > 1920x1080 do not include details on their videocard.
Are there any people that run DDO in 2560x1440 or even 1920x1200? What card are you using?
I'm thinking about switching from my HD5850 to one of the following models:
GTX680Will these be able to cope with somewhat modern games or should I just get 2 in crossfire/SLI?
HD7970 Ghz Edition
XFX HD7970 Black Edition
XFX HD7950 Black Edition
Thanks in advance.
