    27 inch XD Monitor with 2,560x1,440 resolution

    Hello Guys,

    Have any of you got a 27 inch Extreme Definition Monitor running a 2,560x1,440 resolution, I just wondered what they look like, is there a noticeable difference and is it worth the extra 's. What sort of video card would be needed to power it?

    My current graphic card is a 512mb Gigabyte 9800GTX, would this card have enough power to run the monitor for normal computing and occasional mid setting gaming, I'm looking to upgrade the video card for a mid range card, some thing like Gigabyte NVIDIA GTX650Ti 2GB DDR5 PCI-E Graphics Card, does anyone see any problems running this on a 4 year old motherboard - Gigabyte GA-EX38-DS5.

    I have a EVGA GTX-660 SC and it's fantastic! You can pick one up for $200 here in the US. It's going into my son's new PC that I'm building him since I'm not a gamer but the card is extremely impressive and a good value at that price!

It gives the options of 1280x800, 1440x900 or 1680x1050. I tried to do this, but apparently my video card does not support...
