Recommend a PSU wattage - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Probably want to reconsider that 7950 when going for a 1440p monitor. Unless you're playing on low/medium graphic settings.

Yes 1440P eats GPU power like crazy

But no single card can max every game out in 1440P not even a GTX 780Ti or the 290X

You need two video cards for 1440P with max eye candy and 60 fps

i think im gonna stick to a 1080p monitor since getting another gpu will cost more.. is it necessary to have higher frequency monitor like 120hz or so?

120hz eats GPU power as well

At least if you want those 120 FPS

100+fps is enough on my 144Hz monitor (for me), but higher is better. At least get a gtx770 or 280x/7970 if you get a 120-144Hz monitor.
