2560 x 1440 Resolution monitors

Hey guys I'm looking to get a Dell 2560 x 1440 Resolution 27 inch monitor primarily for work but I wonder how gaming will look on it. Do games run at that resolution and if not how will 1900x1200 games look on it? Will it look like 720p looks like on a 1080p monitor?

Specs on my machine are Mac Pro Win 7 64bit duel 2.8ghz quad core Xeon, gtx 680 2gb, and 10 gb ram.

Your 680 is going to struggle to run games maxed at 1440p with only 2 GB of VRAM. Might want to run them at 1080p or upgrade your GPU.

I have a 680 also and it runs great with a lot of games. But if ur gonna heavily mod Skyrim or play Metro games, then it will struggle there. But I mostly max out every game at 1440p and it is BEAUTIFUL. I mean you will never go back to 1080p again. I have the ASUS PB278Q

Hasn't given me that much problem for me. Maybe newer titles this year and last year, sure, but I have pretty much maxed out a lot of games at that resolution.

680 will struggle? It's one step below the 700 series. Why would it struggle if that resolution has been around for a few years? I thought my card is super fast.

So if I don't run it at that resolution how will games look at 1900x1200 on it? Everything looks great on my current 24 inch 1900X1200 monitor.

Yea I thought that sounded off. Maybe he was thinking of another card. But still just curious if games at a lower res look bad.

Higher resolution requires more memory for textures etc.

That's why it's silly for Nvidia to keep producing flagship cards with only 2-3 GB of RAM and is the reason why AMD's 4 GB card outperforms them at 4K.

And I say that as someone who will probably never buy an AMD card again, it just saddens me.

The 680 really wasn't what it was made out to be either. It wasn't a GK110 chip, it was still GK104 if memory serves like the 580, so the true successor to the 580 is the 780.
