View Full Version : Reccomended resolution for 7900gtx

04-03-06, 10:15 PM
I currently have a NEC 17" LCD1770GX

The maximum resolution for it is 1280x1024, and i have heard of problems when ppl run a 7900gtx on any res lower than 1600x1200 that the cards start to perform dramatically worse.

I am thinking about buying a pair of these cards and im wondering if that is true.

Will i have to buy a new screen?

Its not that they actually perform worse at lower resolution. Its just that its overkill for most games. You can get a pretty decent CRT for around $220 that will give you 1600x1200 @75.

If you decide to not get a new display why not just buy one card and see if its fast enough for you at 1280x1024 I'm pretty sure you'll be happy with it.
