And I just bought a Crossover Q27, so I am playing at 1440p now and really loving it. I think this monitor is great value for the price. Not a single dead pixel.
But the thing is that even if I OC my GTX 570 (Core clock to 800 shader clock to 1800) i still get a bit stuck in 30 fps in Bioshock infinite or MEtro last light.
It is really playable but not that smooth. Not that I have a lot of cash to spend after buying the monitor, but I have like around 300 bucks that I could spend on a new card.
Do you guys think now is a good time to buy a new graphic card? I was thinking of waiting until winter so the new consoles come up and we see more graphic cards.
Also, I want to buy Nvidia, kind of used to it. So for less than $300 do u think there is anything that I can buy that will really improve my fps at 1440p?
x2 on the second 570 ... at least considering that budget.
I had a single 670 4GB card for a while with my 1440p monitor and it worked pretty good ... but some games got a bit laggy (Metro 2033 and Syndicate) ... but the second 670 card I added, in SLI, really opened things up ... smooth sailing through just about anything.
Sell your 570 and add the funds to your 300 dollar budget and pick up a single 670 card or 680 card (pref 4gb) and then down the road, add a second one in SLI ...
