R3870x2 1440p?

i currently own "MSI R3870X2-T2D1G-OC" and looking into buying a new monitor with a little bit higher resolution
most of games i play (like csgo,lol,mc,wow..) run at 70+frames on a current 1080p monitor so i was wondering if 1440p is possible with +-60fps
i was looking into AOC Q3279VWFD8, AOC Q27P1 and maybe AOC AGON AG271QX but only thing that bothers me is 144hz of agon monitor since DVI can't handle that and idk if it will run on lower refresh rate.
thanks

Get a GPU, not a new monitor. Get a new monitor later.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)

well this one still does the job fine for my needs and temps are still looking good (max 70c while gaming) i just need a new monitor since the current one is starting to show it's age with washed out colors :/
i just want to know if the card could run 1440p panel over the dvi port? and which one of those monitors is the best one to get

Wow, that is a classic lol. I used to have 4870x2 Quadfire but sadly both of mine artifacted to death long ago. It has a dual link DVI which will run 2560x1440 but only at 60 Hz. A 144hz monitor can be connected and will function but only up to 60 Hz so you'd be paying for functionality you couldn't use.

It will give you a display and run games poorly but it will work. You'll probably need to run it at 1080p if constant stuttering bothers you.

yeah, it'll work. you can also buy a cheap rx580 for a little over $150 in most places.

I still remember the 3000 series and nvidia's 9000 series; liked a lot the flashy boxes with 3d art old cards used to come in, kek. The 8800 GTX was such a beast back then. It was the only card capable of running Crysis decently at the time, haha.

With only 512Mb of effective VRAM it can be a issue at 2K even with basic games. You can try with a custom resolution like [email protected] and see if the DVI-D can handle it.
