Acer 2560x1440 and graphics card

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP



I've been looking at a new graphics card and stumbled across this deal on an Acer 2560x1440 monitor. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009728


The problem is that buying the new monitor and a new graphics card to power will most likely break my budget. So instead of going for a 980 as originally planned I am thinking of going for a 970 Strix which is on super sale (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121899). Will this be enough to power a 1440p for gaming? Any Advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.

please don't go strix and 970

cooler is meh and there's better cards out there, see msi gaming gtx 970 or r9 390, or sapphire tri-x or nitro 390

I wouldn't get a 970 as it's underpowered for that monitor. Either get a 980ti, 980 b-stock from EVGA or get a comparable AMD GPU instead.
