Minimum GPU for 1440p 100Hz Ultrawide Productivity

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,

 

Just got a 1440p 100hz ultrawide monitor (MSI Optix MAG341CQ) and was wondering what the minimum graphics card I can use to run windows at the max resolution and refresh rate. It will only be used for music production and web browsing, never for gaming. I'm just looking a cheap solution to replace the Radeon 6450 in my desktop at the moment as it can only run the full resolution at 30hz. 

 

Thanks for any help or suggestions in advance!

A GT 710 or even integrated graphics if you have a modern-ish processor.

I have an FX 8320 so no integrated graphics 😢 

Have you had experience with the gt 710?

You need a graphics card with a DisplayPort or HDMI 2.0. Going with DVI it will only reach 60Hz on 1440p uw.

The 6450 should be able to do 60 Hz via DVI on that resolution but I guess you have it connected via HDMI.

What resolution is your monitor ? I assume you want the full 100hz too
