Default New monitor

Now im planning to buy the Hanns·G HG-281DPB [...] 6824254026, My current video is EVGA640-P2-N821-AR [...] 6814130071.

Im curious if ill be fine watching movies and buying blueray player if it will run in 1080p i play TF2,Everquest and madden.

I also wounder if it would be worth maybe upgrading to BFG Tech BFGE981024GX2E GeForce 9800 GX2 1GB (512MB per GPU) 512-bit (256-bit per GPU) GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - BFG Tech BFGE981024GX2E GeForce 9800 GX2 1GB (512MB per GPU) 512-bit (256-bit per GPU) GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards.

My MB and PSU below i really can only offord to get monitor but if i "Need" to upgrade the video to get the best effect what can i get without having to upgrade psu or mb.

EVGA 122-CK-NF68-TR LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard [...] 6813188010

Hanns·G HG-281DPB [...] 6824254026

newegg links "Thank you for visiting We apologize for your inconvenience. The page you requested is unavailable.

but go with a GTX 260 Core 216 - EVGA 896-P3-1255-A1 GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD


<<< i like rep :D

I don't like the 28" Hanns-G that I believe you are trying to link to. Don't like the lack of DVI.

But it's good for the price, grab an HDMI cable I guess.

+1 to the 260 Core 216.
