This PC will be used to play games at 1366 by 768 so remember that when rating it for playing games. It won't ever be ran above that resolution so remember that when rating. I was initially thinking of buying an intel CPU/MOBO setup but for the price point of upgrading AMD had the better deal.

AMD FX 6300 OC'd at 4.0ghz.
Team Vulcan 8GB 2133 DDR3
AMD 2GB 7850 1GHZ
550W 80+ Bronze PSU
ASRock 970 Extreme4
500GB 7200 RPM HDD

That should run everything at max at that resolution. Why are you playing games with that garbage monitor?

It's not a terrible monitor. It's an Asus with a DVI cable. I was thinking of getting a third one and using a triple setup. For the meantime though my max resolution monitor goes up to 1366 by 768.

A 1080p monitor is not too expensive these days, but hey its your PC man, yeah that should run anything butter smooth at your resolution turn all the settings way up and get some AA on the go, it might help make things look better.

Damn that's a big difference. Only reason I'm scared to upgrade to 1080P is because I might not be able to run everything on high settings even with AA turned off with a 7850 and 6300.

My monitor is 1600x900, and I got it back in 2009 when 1080p monitors were pricey. There is nothing wrong with lower res monitors.

Might as well go straight to 1440p if/when you upgrade. 1080p is getting long in the tooth. I think I got my last (1200p) monitor in 2005.

Well, actually there are two things that are a negative.

The first thing is that you're just not going to see as much detail in anything. Not "wrong" but certainly if you chose to game on PC, part of the reason is that it looks better, right? And it's not just gaming. It's your desktop, web pages, videos, everything. Less eye strain because of higher pixel density too.

The second is that because there are less pixels making up your image, you're going to need to crank AA up to avoid jaggies, which makes your performance take a hit. At higher resolutions, it's needed less and less the higher you go.

That's true. It's definitely something to consider for sure.
