[Official] 1440p and Above Gaming Club (1440p+) - Page 186

post #1851 of 6172
I have a 5850 in my rig right now connected via displayport to an Auria 27" IPS display. It's really reaching its limit at 1440p gaming and I often times have to downsize the resolution to 1920x1080 to keep things smooth-ish.

Should I go with the 7950 or the 670? I dabble a bit with After Effects and the benefits of CUDA are undeniable to me.. Any thoughts?

or wait till the Kepler refresh rumored in 2013?

I up'd from a GTX580 2GB to a GTX670 4GB and the 1440p performance difference was very significant. Zero chops or stutters ... the 580 could handle things if I reduced quality settings a bunch but it still stuttered somewhat regularly in heavily modded Skyrim...

The 4GB 670 smokes ... everything is good and I can play mostly high settings at 60+ fps in all games other than Metro 2033 ... which occasionally dips into the 30's and 40's ... it eats Borderrlands 2 for breakfast ... I generally stay pegged around 130fps in BL2 ...

But totally pleased with the 670. I do lots of video work, too ... mostly live music shoots and what not ... and the CUDA cores are awesome ...

I'm using 90 contrast and 83 brightness (80 is too little, 85 too much and my eyes hurt at 90+ biggrin.gif)
Using the u2713hm color profile (pretty much the same as apple)

Wondering if I can put it in my son's PC that has a Corsair vx550W PWS (42a on 12V rail). Asus recommends 750w minimum but most reviews I've read said the GTX580 pulls less than 400w at peak. His PC has a E8500 core 2 duo, optical drive, hard drive and 4gb memory, notthing overclocked with one fan in case. Any advice?

I also just hooked up my new u2713hm and it's absolutely gorgeous. My problem now is that my old monitor u2212hm has a lot more cooler colors, what my 22 inch shows as white is not white at all! Bear with me as I am a total newbie when it comes to displays, but is there anything I can do to make them look even a bit more similar? Also I guess I'll have to remove the AG coating on my old dell at some point since it shows very well compared to my new one.
