Gaming on 2560 but dropping res to lower - Page 3

post #21 of 53
I generally play games at 2560x1600, but I have tried playing at a lower res in windowed mode and it was fine. I prefer to play it full res if feasible.

I never had the need to lower my resolution as I usually get 60 fps in most games I play. Also AA really is not needed at all. I often switch from 8x to none in games and there really is no visual difference. Also the ZR30w is truly beautiful, recommended.

We have the same GPU, but you also have a faster CPU so you should be okay if you bought the monitor now.

We have the same GPU so you should be fine for the most part.
Yea i was thinking the same 5970 is still a beast, but that resolution is def a match up for it. What games do you feel that it starts to struggle on you?

The Witcher 2, in some areas my fps drops to around 35 but for the most part i maintain 60 (no ubersampling of course, FPS dropped to like 15 when i tried it). Though that game greatly benefits from an intel CPU. There was a benchmark that showed sandybridge getting around 30 more fps then an amd CPU at 2560, so you'll do even better then me if you play that game.

Other then that i never really had any frame issues, but of course i don't play super demanding games like Crysis and Metro. I also keep my 5970 at stock, so if you have overclocked yours then you should see better results as well.
