just keep wondering as I really want a 24' widescreen LCD soon
and the native Res of those are at 1920x1200
But as i want to use it to First Person Shooter games (maybe Crysis but deff. Cod4) and hate playing with low FPS.
But im worried about how much of a killer machine is needed to play with decent FPS at native resolution. 40+ FPS is prefered

As u see in my sig my current setup really needs a improvement.
I always wanted to upgrade this fall.
But are now waiting to see specs on the 9800 hopefully in November.

But u current 24' owners, Do u play alot in lower res?
and is that ok?
Or u satisfy with lower FPS and play at Native res?

As you can see in my sig, I use a 7900GT, for me I have no problem using 1280x800 for some demanding games, it still looks nice. But, 1920x1200 looks better, as I guess higher resolution would always look better, especially when we sit a few feet away from our monitors.

Get the 24", you will be happy with it.

I think to be fully comfortable you will need SLI 8800, or get the new GeForce 9800 when it comes out in a couple of months. I play everything at 1920x1200, and I get about 40-50 fps average at Bioshock DX10, but there are times with lots of action when it lowers to about 25, and that's not good for a shooter. I guess Unreal Tournament 3 and Crysis will be the same.

If you are running Vista... DON'T get SLI at the moment because it doesn't work as it should.. ie. people reporting only 20% performance increase or even decreases! It's really a mixed bag though... for example jAkUp has good FEAR performance on SLI in Vista. A single 8800GTX will suffice for anything at the moment... now is a really bad time to be going with SLI anyway as 9800 is around the corner.

For a 24" widescreen to run games smoothley at native resolution, id definately recommend 8800GTX in SLI.

If you dont want SLI then for a single card i would go no higher than a 20.1 with 1680x1050 resolution.

I use 1 8800GTX and my monitor is a 20.1" widescreen, i run all games at the monitors native resolution with no problems.

@ Maximillian79
with your set up: AMD 64 4000+, Corsair TWINX2048-3200C2, 7800GTX 256MB, imo...you won't get acceptable performance at 1920x1200, especially with this new gen of games.

As for SLI vs. single with my setup(single GTX), I have not found a game yet I can't run smoothly and completely playable at 1920x1200 maxed settings with some level of AA/AF

No im fully aware that i will need to upgrade soon
And i also want to.. But waiting to see what happends when 9800 hopefully gets released in November,
Unfortunatly I havent got enought money to buy 2 8800GTX atm
So hopes either the 8800GTX will drop price when 9800 is here.
But most i would prefere 1 9800 when thats out and if its worth it.
Ofcourse MB, CPU and Ram will be upgraded too
Wanna switch to Intel

For now, on my rig a single 8800GTX is pushing it in certain games at the 1920x1200 resolution. Games with lots of action are especially the ones I notice the most slowdowns...MOH:Airborne for example. Bioshock is not so bad, and GRAW2 is actually smooth. So it varies. A 7xxx series card is for sure going to have a hard time running newer titles at this resolution.

I'm planning to upgrade to the Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 with an X38/48 board in November. I think that should be able to handle things with a single 8800 GTX. Of course, if the 9800 cards if or when they arrive do actually provide a substantial boost, I'll likely grab that too.

I have a 8800gtx and 24" 1920x1200 and havent had a problem with fps in any game so far..

Dont know about when crysis gets released :p
but then Ill just lower the res to 1680x1050 with black bars around it and it will be like playing on a 19"-20" or something so not a problem at all.

If you are questioning me ....the answer is yes, DiRT ran perfectly, WiC demo was fine and played without issue, even Crysis Beta as unoptimized as it is runs ok and I'm sure the cleaned DX10 retail version will be perfectly playable. As for CoJ....I spit on that game

Once you go 24" and SLI you will never go back. It's truly the best way to game :afro:

my rig is on the edge of running Crysis with decent details on and 1280x1024 wich is the native resolution for my Monitor so if i go high details on Crysis in 1680x1050 i would probably get into some trouble running Crysis at that rez and COD4 i recon

ASUS overclock your CPU and GFX and you should be fine

I play at 1920x1080 which is my 47 incher's native resolution. All of my games run great on my 8800gts 640mb.

I can run everything smoothly EXCEPT for Crysis at 1920X1200, high settings on stock 8800GTX. If you want to add 16X anti-aliasing, you will need another G80.

been running everthing @ native res (1900*1200) on my dell 2407WFP -- able to run bioshock without any issues + good fps (40~50) -- im content with my single 8800gtx but im pretty sure i gonna wanna upgrade to 9800 when its released.

I would have agreed with you a year ago. But now not so much. SLI is more of a pain than a benifit. 24" is definately the way to go, and grab a 8800gtx to go with it. I can play everything fine at 1920x1200. Crysis runs fine if I use little or no AA. And I suspect it will run even better once the final version comes out.

those games do not run smoothly maxed out with aa and af at 1920x1200 with 1 gtx.

dirt - 20 to 25 fps. too slow for a racing game
wic retail - 15 to 25 fps in heavy map. TONS of slowdowns
crysis - everyone complaining about performance. retail might be different but i dont expect a lone g80 to play at 1920x1200 with maxed settings + aa/af
coj - just runs slow in general, especially in dx 10.

True, but once SLI is optimized for Crysis its going to be worth it to have SLI to play those resolutions with even better FPS and more detail

I wouldn't base how Crysis will perform in its final retail version based on the beta MP that's out.

maybe you shouldnt run it with aa?
just a tip..... :bleh:
dirt and WiC ran perfectly for me to but I dont run my games with 128xQFASAA (Quality Fast Awesome Super Anti Aliasing) with 90% hit to performance :rolleyes:
