They have a BIOS switch so it's really not complicated and you can just flash back in the case you need to RMA

I made my mind up... XFX 6870... 6950/70 would be great but the 70 is to much, and the 50 loses warrenty so it is not worth it for me... the 6870 is just my cup tea atm... and atm i will prob not upgrade monitors for another 2 - 3 years so the 6950 is to much for me...

6870 would do me justice at 1368x768 my friend has a 5870 and its a great he loves it, but its ALMOST on par with a 6870 and the 6870 is cheaper. All who replied will get a + rep thank you to all for helping me save money haha

no one will know you flashed your bios. you think as if there's a transmitter in your card which will immediately let amd know that you voided your warranty. flashing your bios is 100% safe process especially now with the new switches amd introduced. there's no way for distributor to know that you flashed your bios. if you want to rma your card just revert to stock bios by setting switch to #2 and VOILA!

At your resolution, you should get a 5770. That's plenty for that monitor.
