I mean I'm the kind of guy who played ps3 and played red dead redemption for the first time. The first thing I said is wow this game looks so real, jaw dropping graphics, everything looks real and to this day I still love the game no matter what people say.
So I think I'm graphically sensitive.
Is there a big difference between 1080/1200p and 1600p?
I mean the graph quality, or is it just because the game is running on a larger screen but similar quality.
I don't have much blurr at the moment on my 60hz screen so I can hardly say how a 120hz would improve smoothness and stuff.

If you have the money, go for a hi-resolution IPS monitor. They are quite expensive, though.

When my friend got one, my jaw dropped at how good windows 7 looked, nevermind games. It really is beautiful. thumb.gif

Like... I mean.. they are really nice.

Also what would an IPS add if you ran this in 1600P ?
Some details one might not even see or notice? I don't know .. Looking at that video I'd go for a 1200p 120hz.

Remember, running at a higher resolution will make your card work alot harder. A 670/680 should be able to handle it fine, though.

IPS simply makes the monitor display truer colors. The resolution is an addon for the price. Technically, manufacturers could make a 2560x1440 TN panel, but the price makes it not worth it. Also there is severe color problems at that resolution with TN.

By the way, I'm talking about the 2560x1440 resolution IPS panels. I think you are talking about the 1920x1200 ones, no?

I am not sure if anyone has mentioned, but be careful with that memory. Your CPU cooler might not fit if the memory if the memory's heat spreader is in the way. Go for Corsair, but get the low profile version.

EDIT: correction.

Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory are the ones I use, will this cause a problem?

Depends, are you going for the ones with tall heat spreaders or the low profile version?

EDIT: you can see both types here. http://www.corsair.com/en/memory-by-product-family/vengeance.html

You should go for low profile ones if you want that CPU cooler.

good catch sevada88, definitely go with the low profile ram. You wont need to worry about the temps of ram until you start overclocking with some seriously high voltage so the heatspreaders are unnecessary.
