Of course it has a "performance hit" - it has roughly TWICE the number of pixels as the 1080p monitor. What were you expecting? Wasn't coming from 1280 x 1024 to 1080p also a huge performance hit? Yes, now. Wasn't it also "worth it" considering the vastly superior image quality?

i just want a monitor that does my rig justice ;p

I'm not a native English speaker so perhaps the meaning of my post was unclear. I didn't write about the performance hit in a negative context at all, I just mentioned it since OP was wondering if he could play games on max or not on his 6950.

I'm fine with the performance hit it will bring.

You're going to need more horsepower to run every game maxed at 2560x1440..second 6950 should go a long way.

Also, the U2711 is a better choice but the price is steep..and it is better than your current monitor by leaps and bounds

for the price of one of them monitors you can get three of these!

and i know your probably thinking they are really bad because of the price. but seriously i just got one and i will be buying another 2 in the future! these monitors are so good!

insane bang for buck! ( also please remember the link i showed you contains UK tax so you will be able to get it even cheaper off newegg )

5760x1200 = EPIC WIN!!
