Should I spend $100 more and buy the 7950??? - Page 2

If you do decide to pick up a 7950, you can get a HIS 7950 at NCIX.ca for $400.00.

Id say just keep your card and see how the monitor works out. It would be smarter to first find a reason to upgrade and then buying new gear instead of buying the new gear first and finding out that you didn't need it. Plus this would be less of a hassle than returning your current video card and forking over more money. Just my 2 cents.

True

My results for this card on the 2560x1440 monitor are
My ram usuage was about 1550 mb so about 200 more than before and my FPS was like between 40-50 with high 40's being the majority. ALthough it still seemed as smooth as 60FPS at this resolution. Can that happen or are my eyes playing tricks on me? lol
