post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I don't game on it, I just want to know if anyone knows off hand whats the cheapest 1440p card for running multimedia and win 7 smoothly.

I was looking at the geforce 210,610, 720, 730 but I'm not sure if they support 1440p res 60 hz

Do you have an integrated GPU on your processor and a motherboard with Displayport or DVI-D? If so, no GPU is necessary.

It looks like they all technically support the resolution. I've seen 210's get bogged down (although to be fair this was in older C2D class systems). Assuming the price difference isnt huge, I would go for something modern like the GT 720.

Use integrated GPU if you have one. If not, go with latest gen, 210 was nice but is too old, I'd stay away from it. My vote goes for GT 730, since it's the same price as 720.
