GTS 250 1920x1080?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
hey all.
i'm rocking a GTS250 1GB card, overclocked about 20% stable.
as of right now im thinking about upgrading my monitor, as I only have a 19" 1440x900.

But, would the GTS250 be able to handle 1920x1080 well?
I play Starcraft2, bad Company2, dragon age 2, occasionally Dead Space2, and FO:NV.

Is the up in resolution worth potentially limiting frames and performance?

i have the same cards..well two of the PNY versions. They handle 1080 pretty well with BFBC2 you can play on medium with decent FPS. 40-60 with some fps dips. But thats with one. Might wanna look into SLI if ur MB supports it.

My 9800 GT 1GB (almost the same as a 250, 250 = 9800GTX, literally) barely handled medium-high 1680x1050 in most games, and that was with my 1090T. I wouldn't recommend 1920x1080 on that card.

I had a BFG 9800 512 running on a old athlon dual core and I could play 1080p just fine.

largely depends on the games, but almost definitely not enough. you'll need double the GPU power since the res is almost doubled. try GTX 460, GTX 470, GTX 560, or GTX 285 (older, not recommended)
