So yeah, was just looking for some game suggestions that are tried and tested to work flawlessly at the resolution, preferably slightly older games that might not get the obvious recommendation that comes with titles like BF3 or Skyrim etc.
Thanks for the helpful consideration

Don't know if you've played them but the Batman games are very fun and look awesome on a high res screen. Assassin's Creed Revelations was fun on a big screen as was Beat Hazard, any of the Crysis games, Dead Space 2, Driver San Francisco, Just Cause 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Metro 2033, Mirror's Edge (use of color is amazing), both Portal games, Splinter Cell Conviction, and the Walking Dead. All fun games at 2560x1440 or 2560x1600 (or really any res biggrin.gif).

Yes, VPN, that's right! I get mixed up with all the networking terms now and again.

I must say it is gorgeous. UK buyers should grab this for £319 from overclockers.co.uk whenever the deal swings around again, for it is a steal at that price with 2 years local warranty and no import taxes or international ebaying. 1440p makes older games look better. Oh and my overclocked 7950 handles it fine ... but I will crossfire later regardless biggrin.gif
Question:
What games can you suggest for me at 1440p? I'm thinking I might re-play Fallout 3 again. Currently getting really addicted to XCOM: Enemy Unknown (which is brilliantly addictive btw), and think Dishonored has a charm very reminiscent of Thief. Have tried The Witcher 2, GTA IV, Max Payne 3, Rage, Dirt 3, Borderlands 2, Black Mesa, Saints Row 3rd and Syndicate so far, with predominantly fantastic results.

Hello mate. Welcome to the club thumb.gif

Your question is answered and they are right. Pretty much every game's graphics are better in 1440p but some games migh crash when changing the resolution. I edit such games from their .ini files and the problem gets solved. Up until now Darksiders is the only game i could not play in 1440p. Somehow the developers make you choose up to 1080p and I could not find a way around it. I guess Darksiders 2 have the same problem but I am not sure.

The games the bundle have are

 

Capsized

Dungeouns of Dredmor

Hoard

I gave few of the games a shot in 1440p and I will be posting screenshots along the way.
