    Default What Kind Of Monitor To Get?

    Hey guys. Currently I am using a square monitor with 1280x1024 resolution. I hope to upgrade my monitor within the next month. All these days I had hoped to get a full HD monitor. Now I heard that if I do not play games at the native resolution then it will look quite bad. Do you think I should play at full HD but with a few settings turned down, or should I get a monitor with a different resolution? My graphics card is a GTX 560. I hope you guys answer me soon. I want the monitor to make games look better, including the upcoming GTA V, given its a good port unlike GTA IV. I appreciate your help. Thank you.

    I'd say get a full HD display and upgrade your graphics card down the line. You will have to turn the settings down if you want to play the latest titles on a 1080p display.

    I would like to spend on a graphics card but the problem is that my Motherboard is not so good. It's a AsRock G41M. So I was wondering if I have to upgrade that. If not then I can get a 670 in June/July when my cousin comes back from Canada.

    better you spend on i3 and a b75 board instead buying a monitor as gtx 670 will be a huge bottleneck for your 775 socket processor

    I'm using a core 2 quad q6600. I wanna upgrade that to an 15 2500K. My choices are to either upgrade my motherboard, monitor, gpu, monitor or processor. Only any one. That is the real problem. I think I want to get a monitor first since it will increase my gameplay the most drastically and I can play all the games on good settings anyway with the current set up.

    You serious? :S At a higher resolution, the gpu will have to work harder so the cpu won't be that huge of a bottleneck.

    Watching movies and tv shows are all secondary. My primary use is gaming. I know my GTX 560 is a decent enough gpu at the moment. If I want to upgrade my CPU first, then that will include upgrading my Mobo before anything else, cause this will not support even an i3 let alone an i5. and most mobos (cheaper ones) don't support the 'K' series processors. Another thing I'll mention is that I haven't overclocked anything and won't be doing that because I do not have any kind of cooler. I will get a cooler in the near future and then maybe *think* about overclocking.

    Based on all of these factors, please recommend a good decision for me. I really want a HDMI monitor for the future. If that doesn't game efficiently then I have a Samsung LCD monitor, which I will be keeping, so I'll have to go back to using that. With future upgrades however, I can probably get my games running well enough. When Nvidia launches the 7xx series, I could get a 670 at a lower price. I really hope this helps.

    LONG POST CAUSE I WANT TO HELP YOU GIVE ME THE BEST ANSWER.

    Lower end LGA1155 motherboards do support the K series CPU's but you cannot overclock them (Applicable for B75, H61, H67 only.) which defeats the point of buying a K Series CPU in the first place. Lower end Z68/P67/Z77 boards allow overclocking. I'd still say get the full HD display, later on upgrade. When the new series of cards launch, not only GTX670s, but you'll see upper tier AMD cards up for sale too. If you are okay with tuning down the settings, your 560 should do fine.

    Please buy the monitor first then upgrade your CPU and MOBO and then Buy a 670. DO not suffer like me coz right now I am using a quad core q6600 @2.4GHz with a MSI 670 PE. major bottlenecking.

    To answer the question you asked it best if you buy a full HD monitor. Problem is HD monitor with HDMI support have recently become expensive on the other hand HD monitors with only VGA connections are cheaper.
