So I had some free time and a GTX670 available so I decided to check out how much CPU frequency actually mattered at my resolution [2560x1440]. After doing some tests I realized I could actually share the results since the 670 is actually a really common GPU with nice price/perf and with the Korean monitors becoming more and more common the setup I had is suddenly a pretty common one.
