What's the best gpu for 1600x900 SOLVED

Whats the best gpu for 1600x900 if thinking 3-4 years ahead?

Im trying to get an overview over gpu.Didn't pay the computer market attention for 7-8 years and everything has changed,hehe. Any who has an overview of the gpu at the moment and how they are likely to develop? When i google gpu review I get so many hits i don't know where to start reading, so if any could point me in the right direction, that would be great:D

This is one of the worst questions I have ever read. First of all, are we talking mobile or desktop? I don't know many people that still game at such a low resolution on a desktop so I assume you are talking about laptops. For 3-4 years ahead, nobody in their right mind can predict what could happen. You also don't mention what settings you wish to run games at and which games you possibly are talking about. I can't waste anymore of my precious time answering such a haphazard question so the simple answer is:

Buy the best GPU you can afford. Nvidia, AMD, it doesn't matter, just make sure you get the best you can if you want future proofness. More memory, higher clock speed, you know the rest.

LOL, a dumb question from an dumb norwegian:D I meant gaming actually, desktop.
And yes, I have never spoiled my eyes whit anything higher than 1600x900 and I am not going to:D

But I like to play whit higest settings,max aa, tweaked etc

If you can spend the dough, a 7970 should max everything out without a sweat at that resolution for the foreseeable future without breaking a sweat. Although I'm sure there are much better bang-for-your buck cards like the GTX 560 TI which would be every bit as good at that resolution for quite a bit cheaper. A 7950, would be a good investment too, now that I think about it, assuming you don't have to pay a whole lot for it. With generous amounts of VRAM, you should be able to crank AA and other settings without those cards breaking a sweat. Again, this is going for more of an extravagant end of things.

,

I was thinking of the 560 ti,but dont think that would do it. But looking at the 7000 series I get alittle confused. But im not going to buy it right now, as my gtx 460 768mb is doing high/ultra whit aa on bf3.( 1200x720, im not that demanding of the resoulution,hehe) So untill an game is realesed that is more demanding than bf3, i don't need to upgrade. So im just doing some reaserch, so when i see a good deal i can take it.

But whats the diffrent on 7950vs7970
6950vs 7950
