Monitor upgrade advice ...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey all ...

I hope I can get some answers here ... hehe ...

I am bout to upgrade my monitor but I am not sure which would be the best route ... going 27" full HD LED screen ... or going with a 23" 120hz 3D screen ...


I have a single MSI 560Ti Hawk and game at 1080p


All information would be greatly appreciated ...

Kind Regards.

The benefit of a 120 hz monitor wouldn't be seen with a single 560. You have to be able to pull 120 fps. (I am guessing you wouldn't be able to but I don't know what games you play)

ok good point ... I play a ton of games ... don't stick 2 any ... Batman AC ... Black Ops ... Crisis ... Operation Flashpoint ... Deus Ex Human Rev. ... Skyrim ... etc ...


Would I see 120fps with Sli 560s ... or should I just wait with the 120hz 3D until I can get 580s

I'm loving my HP 2511X. I'm not big into monitors, but this thing blows away my old asus and aoc monitors. You may want to look into this, I don't know if it looks good statistics wise. this 25" LED is perfect for me.

What kind of performance hit would I take moving to a 27" ... or is does it stay the same due to same resolutions ...


The reason I am upgrading is cause my monitor stuffed out and I am currently using a monitor that only supports 1600x900 ... I never got 2 use my 560ti at 1080p ...

screen size does not effect performance, it is still driving the same resolution. ex) 55" 1080P tv will perform the same as a 21" 1080P monitor tongue.gif

How much of a performance hit will I take from 1600x900 to 1920x1080 ... ... Will my 560Ti handle it ?? ... with all games at max except maybe BF3 ... lol

well, if you have a 1gb card, i would say ~10% maybe? I've never gamed lower than 1080P, so I don't really know. check these benches:

494

495

497

whoa ... there are performance drops but not as much as I expected ... and BF 3 is the highest requiring game at the moment if I understand correctly ...

my clocks are faster than a standard 560 ... but i don't know if that will make much difference ...
