2560 x 1440 Resolution monitors

A single 680 will struggle at that resolution for most newer graphically intensive games even with minimum anti aliasing. A 780 ti is what's needed at that resolution.
And if you hear as the warm night falls. The silver sound from a time so strange. Sing to me, sing to me.

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.

The VRAM is your limiting factor.

Right. I mentioned this in the second post. Not sure why there is confusion.

VRAM won't be the limiting factor at 1440p. Doesn't even limit at 1600p. (Unless you are raising a stink about 1-2fps)

I have 2x660's with 2gb of video ram, it runs 1440p fine.

Edit: The above poster proves it. People honestly have no clue what they are talking about.

Also, anti-aliasing is not really a necessity on most games @ 1440p on a 27 inch monitor. The resolution itself is enough to eliminate most jaggies. On most games, you will not be able to tell any difference between 2X AA or any others that are higher. Higher ppi on such a small screen and all that...

ASUS PB278Q 27-Inch <---

That looks like a good monitor for a great price but I need a pro monitor so I got this one for 740.

I hope games run fine on it. All I know is at work they have me on the apple 27inch display at 1440p and I can work all day and have no headache and way less eye strain. But I hate the glare/lack of inputs on those.

Eventually I'm going to build a PC for Creative Suit with the latest xeons two titans solid state and 128 ram. I'm pretty sure I can run games okay at 1440p with that! Ha.I don't think I'm getting the garbage can Mac Pro as I'm not a fan of ati, cuda acceleration in Creative Suite is way better.

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.


Edit: beaten to it.

People sure are over rating how much vram makes a difference when benchmarks show that it barely matters.

To the people in my post that said my mac pro with a 680 would struggle running games at 1440p please take note that you were 100 percent wrong. I got my Dell U2713H today and it runs ALL my games exactly the same performance wise as 1080p.

To the people that said I would not regret it and never go back to 1080p you are 100 percent correct. This is amazing. Particularly this monitor. The color accuracy is stunning. I need that more so for work but it doesn't hurt to have for games at all.

It even makes old games look even better, and you notice details you never really could get with 1080p.

I did only try out bio shock infinite, Crysis 3 and BOPS2 but if newer games give me a problem then it would not be resolution related.

I forgot to ask, what if a game does not have 2k support? For example MGS Rising I can not kind any 1440p setting. Can you force it? Hope for updates?
