I would probably go with a GTX 560 TI for that res.

While The Master Chief is correct for res of 1440x900 as you have asked about, have you considered you may end up upgrading your monitor as well before your next GPU?

So a 560Ti or 6850 would be a good option for you. having said that if money is tight then you caould get a 5770 now and then get a second if later to Crossfire if you need more umph!

Also what is the budget?

just wondering really got both a gtx480 in this rig and a gtx465 sitting about, had a xfx5770 and after reading various posts etc on different threads in regards to new builds and what size monitor etc, the general feeling im getting is that maybe both these cards i have is overkill for my res... which i suppose is a good thing... least i can max out settings etc just looking for feedback cheers

.. you have a GTX 480 and you want a new card for 1400x900p ?
What kind of issues does it suffer ?

A 465 should do fine too.

EDIT: Ah .. I just read your previous post.

The 560 would be a tad more future proof...especially if you increase resolution in the future, and if you did require some more muscle, you can always SLI it.

Edit: you have a 480? Keep it...you're already good to go.

I suggest, like the other guy, a better monitor (with higher resolution ofc.) instead of a new GPU. You are more than fine already.

Why everyone say "its a tad overkill" ?!?!?! dont get it at all..

Before my current monitor i had a 1440*900 HP 19" WITH a 470; overkill?!?!?! some say yes, but there its nothing like turn every single gfx effects to the max (even on nvidia control panel when in-game its not enough) and enjoy a silky smooth game experience !!

Metro 2033 maxed?!?! yep BC2 Maxed with 32x AA?!?! YEP.. ANYTHING

ALWAYS go to the biggest GFX card you can buy no matter what.. period!!!!

Guys he doesn't want to buy a new card he just wants to know.

My GTS 450 is maxing most older games at 1440x900, but Metro, Crysis, and Just Cause 2 all struggle a bit. I think a HD6850 or GTX 460 1GB would be ideal for 19" res.
