Default need help with monitor resolution

i'm getting this video card: SAPPHIRE 100312SR Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

I currently have 1280 x 1024 as my maximum resolution. Is this ok?

Also i'm using 650W PSU, i don't know if thats enough or not

thanks for the help!

Default Re: need help with monitor resolution

it's ok, but probably multiple times overkill for any game thats out right now. the psu may be fine depending on its quality and the power draw of your other components.
