Video Card For 1680x1050 And 22 Inch Monitor

After years of great gaming with an 8800gtx it finally went out and i am now stuck using a old geforce fx 5200. Since i need a new video card for my system i would like to know what is recommended. I would like to know what video card you guys recommend for a gaming res of 1680x1050. This is off topic, but i am also considering upgrading my cpu from a q6600 to a e8500 although i could swear that i got a major performance boost when i went from a 2. 4ghz core2duo i forget the model to a q6600 g0 in crysis. I would like advice on this from other gamers. Is it worth the change for game performance?

My most played games are:

Fallout 3, mass effect, and witcher enhanced.

Graphics Card For 19 Inch Ws Monitor

New to graphics and monitors, so chances are it will be easy to solve. I have just been give a 19'' widescreen lcd for crimbo. I am currently running onboard graphics as i don't need anything special. The highest resolution i can get is 1280 x 1024, but when in widescreen mode, it stretches everything and look rubbish. I have looked at the papers that have came with it and the read as follows:-

19'' widescreen
Max res 1440 x 900

I cant seem to find this setting in my properties, so i assume i will need a graphics card upgrade. Am i on the right lines? Or am i missing out something very simple? I would really like to have the monitor on widescreen and have the resolution so that it fills the screen without the stretching. This will maximize the monitor and my workspace.

A Single 5870 Enough For A 30 Inch Monitor ?

About to order my new rig to coincide with the release of windows 7, i got most of what i want in there already figured out:

Phenom ii x4 965 (the 955 is only 20 bucks cheaper)
Msi 790fx-gd70
4 gb ocz black edition 8-8-8-24 1600
2 640gb wd caviar black in raid 0
Sapphire radeon hd 5870
Lian li x1000
Corsair tx850w
Samsun 305t 30 inch monitor @ 2560x1600
Prolimatech megahalems

I plan on playing games at max settings crysis/crysis warhead included. I am worried that at that resolution 1 5870 will not cut it and i am already over my budget by a solid 300$ to afford the second graphic card would have to wait for the end of next november probably. If i wait till november i might as well see what the new nvidia cards look like and just buy this thing post xmas (might get a better deal!). So the way i see it i can do one of two things, buy it now or buy an xbox 360 to tide me over till january and buy the best computer i can afford then! I refuse to pay 3300$ for a computer and not bbe blown away by the performance!

Phillips 17 Inch Monitor Shrinks

One of my 17 inch monitors (phillips) starts up fine but within 1 minute or 2 it shrinks to about half of the width, with the sides concave. It is definitely the monitor, as i can plug it in to different computers and it acts the same. The buttons cannot reset it, neither by resetting to factory, nor by adjusting pincushion. What next?

Monitor Price Of Samsung, Lg 15.6 Inch

What is the price if samsung, lg and different other brand 15. 6 inch monitor?


Are you looking to purchase an lcd or a crt monitor? Crt monitors are really hard to find now and taking into consideration the current prices, it no longer makes sense because they are pretty much outdated and have been replaced by lcd monitors. And even if you look at lcd monitors, it won't be easy to find small monitors in the market now. A dell in1910n which is an 18. 5 inch monitor with a maximum resolution of 1366x768 pixels will cost you 6, 000 rupees according to the website under source. It's better you purchase a 20" monitor which will cost you around 6, 500 to 7, 000 rupees. Here's a small list of 20" monitors: http://www.Priceguide. In/monitor-size/20-inch/

Correct Resolution For A 19 Inch Widescreen Monitor

What screen resolution do i use for a 19 inch widescreen?

Before i had a regular sized screen i think 17 inch, and i had it on 1280x1024. I want to correctly scale it up to my new monitor, i want to try and have the same pixels to inch ratio (as close as possible) just with more pixels on my screen

Right now i have it on 1440x900 but it feels kind of weird (maybe im just not used to the widescreen expierence) edit: bassicaly id like to keep the same height, the height shrunk abuot 100 pixels and i think thats whats causing the weirdness. Btw my video card is an ati pci-express (i forget the model) and im using the dvi port thing.

Using 32 Inch Samsung Lcd Hdtv For A Monitor

Using the 32inch samsung lcd hdtv for a monitor? What do ya guys think? Sure an arm and a leg needs to be sacrificed for it, i certainly cant afford it, but lets just assume you could afford it. How would it fare as a monitor? Staring at this enormous screen in front of you, playing call of duty 2 on that would make me drool.

Best Sli Setup / 30 Inch Monitor / Psu Questions

I am about to buy a new computer, that includes a dell 3008wfp. My budget is 3000$ and buying that monitor leaves me with ~1700 (assuming i buy the monitor refurbished). I have a few questions regarding some of the components. Cpu: intel i7 920
Motherboard: asus p6t
Memory: ocz platinum triple-channel kit 2gb/stick pc3 10666
Hard drives: ocz apex 60gb ssd wd 640gb 7200 rpm 32mb cache
Graphics card(s): 2 bfg geforce gtx 280 ocx edition in sli
Psu: corsair 850tx 850w

Since i am running this on a 30 inch monitor, i wanted something powerful enough to support 2560x1600. Since the gtx 295 seems to be at its eol (it is not being sold anywhere) i decided to go with the gtx 280s in sli for now. First question - do you think the gtx 280s in sli are best? I am pretty partial to nvidia but it seems that 4890s in crossfire performs just as well and are cheaper. Second question - dell 3007wfp-hc or dell 3008wfp? The cheaper the better, but i do not want to risk major loss in performance for price. After reading the hardocp thread about this exact same question (listed here) i am still somewhat confused. The 3008 has more inputs and a onboard scalar. Having this scalar allows you to read a lot more resolutions regardless of what resolution may be coming in (because the scalar scales the resolution coming in)? In the case of the 3007, not having this scalar means that sending a resolution to the 3007 that it does not support will not work? This is a very important question to me, because if i were to buy the 3008, the only way it would work, is if i were to buy it refurbished, and even then i would still break 3000. Third question - am i pushing it too close with running a 850w psu with the gtx 280 sli setup?

24 Inch Glossy (not Matte) Lcd Screen Monitor

I don't like matte monitors, and light/reflections not an issue for me. I can not find any samsung or lg glossy screen type 24" monitors. I did however find a glossy screen acer 24" . I can't post links because im a new user but its the acer p243waid and you can get it on newegg for 330$. But im willing to pay extra for quality of a bigger name brand. Any help plz? It kind of surprises me samsung wouldn't make a 24" monitor with glossy screen?

Monitor / Video Card Problem

Ok so out of nowhere my monitor has these blue and red lines blinking all over the place. If i try to put the refresh rate at 60 hz where its supposed to be, it goes ape-**** crazy and i cant even read anything on the monitor because its going nuts. But, this problem is quite weird. I have an on-board video card, and my pci-e video card. I also have two monitors. The current hd monitor has the problem with the pci-e video card, but the other monitor works perfect. The hd monitor though, works perfectly with the on-board video card. So i have no idea if it is a monitor problem or a video card problem, since they both work under different conditions. The hd monitor works with the on-board video perfectly, while the non-hd monitor works perfectly with the pci-e video card. The hd monitor will not work in 1080p at all. The screen goes crazy when i try. I have to keep it at a low refresh rate and resolution to do anything on it. Odd. I know. Any help would be a great service. Btw. I already tried separate drivers for the pci-e card. I also redid my whole os totally. So thats not it either. I'm lost. Which doesnt happen very often, lol.

Video Card For Improving Video Quality On 22'' Monitor

I am seeking for help to improve the video quality of the 22'' monitor. It's samsung t220 and the max resolution it supports is 1680 x 1050. Currently, it's connected through vga with the onboard intel integrated graphics. Say if i connect a video card and then connect monitor through dvi, will i be able to see considerable improvement in the video quality? Please advise how do i get the best out of the monitor. Also, can i see hd content on this monitor? It does support hdcp. And i found this ati radeon 4350 hd video card - which looks decent enough for movies and casual stuff. I don't plan to game on this machine. Is this card fine for my purpose?

Adding A Second Video Card For Dual Monitor + Tv

I currently have a 4870 and will get a new tv soon. A good amount of my media library is on my pc, so i want to be able to use it seamlessly. Here's the problem: i already have a dual monitor setup, and would have to sacrifice one dvi output for the hdmi connection. The other option may be the video-out, but i don't like the idea because i want the tv to use 1920x1080, proper hdtv. So i'm thinking i'll add a 4830, maybe 4850, this will give me plenty of outputs and also a bit of a performance boost thanks to crossfire. (Could get more if i bought a "bigger" card, but i don't play games much so it's not a big deal. ) The main concerns are silence and power consumption, but those are usually not a problem with that range of video cards anyway. Anybody have experience with this matter? Specific recommendations?

Getting Higher Resolution Monitor, Should I Upgrade My Cpu Or Video Card ?

My system is in my sig. I am planning on getting a larger monitor and going from 1680x1050 to 1920x1200. I know its not that much of a differance but i also have enough money to also get either a cpu (phenom ii 955) or a new video card (radeon 5770). About the only games i play is world of warcraft, burnout paradise, and battlefield 2, and 2142. Which would be the best for me to get, the video card or cpu?

Not that it really matters but i plan on getting the samsung t260hd.

Good Video Card Solution For A 3rd And 4th Monitor ?

I'm getting ready to ditch my x1900xtx, as seen from my other thread, and upgrade it. It'll be used for my 3rd and 4th monitors. Preferably in the $50-$150 range. My 3rd and 4th monitors are used for websites and movies (blueray). I use a 4870 as my primary on my 1st and 2nd monitors. On those, i do rendering, animation, and games, as well as movies. Since i'll be watching hd movies on it, would i need a good card, do you think?

I've been looking at a used 4770, and 4670. Do i need something better?

I've never done sli or crossfire, but do you guys recommend it? Is there a big performance increase?

Fanless Pci E X1 Video Card For Multi Monitor Support

I'm looking for a fan less pci-e x1 video card (not x16!). This is to add additional monitors to a daw; it must be pci-e x1. Fan-less is ideal, but if you have personal experience using other quiet pci-e x1 cards, i am open to suggestions! I'd prefer to stay away from the cad/workstation type cards.

Can't Uninstall Video Card And Switch Monitor From Digital 2 Analog

Just got off the phone with xfx tech support. Trying to remove / uninstall a graphics card that is connected to the monitor via a digital cable. When the card is removed or disconnected and the on-board graphics is connected via an analog cable, the monitor only shows an osd that says digital. I can't get any display via the on-board graphics which is an analog connection. My box is open! Already had the card out and boxed up but i can't get the original setup to work again, so i had to put the card back in. I do have a registry backup made with erunt before i installed the graphics card on july 12 and also a system restore point, but don't want to have to use that unless really necessary. Can someone help with this?

Video Card - Pixel Shader Vs Video Memory

My pick are these two video cards for my old computer for my basic needs(don't need to burn my expensive laptop). Asus radeon hd 3450 256 mb ah3450 8x agp low profile


512mb pny geforce 6200 vga/dvi/hdtv agp vcg62512aeb

>Both almost the same price(not buying from the links above)

>Gf6200: twice the video memory of the radeon hd 3450. Supports directx 9. 0, shader model 3. 0 and opengl 2. 0 support

>Radeon supports directx10. 1 and shader model 4. 1 enables stunning and complex special effects opengl2. 0 support

I might not use that that old crap to play games that needs directx10. 1(shader4. 1) but i might consider someday. Gf6200 has twice the video ram though. Any suggestions?

I will be playing games that only needs directx 9. 0c(shader3. 0), so i'm assuming direct10. 1(shader4. 1) will improve graphic qualities? But it has halve the video ram than the other.

Integrated Video Card Can Use Ram As Video Memory?

I want to know more about my video card(intel integrated extreme graphics 2 [circa 2003]) cause i don't understand, i tried googling for a while with no result:

1) how much exactly video memory does it have?

2) i heard that if it's integrated, i can go to the bios and make ram be shared with my video memory in case my video ram isn't enough? Is that true? Is that true with my integrated card too?

3) i'm of course going to buy a video card(agp type) capable of handling at least pixel shader 2. 0. If question 2 is "yes", can the new graphic card also be shared to use ram if necessary?

Depending if my integrated video card can use ram as video memory, this will help me decide whether i should get more ram or an agp video card that has a lot of video ram

I can't test the bios because i just ordered the old desktop and it will take a while to come:

Compaq evo d510 cmt

Windows xp professional

Intel pentium 4 2. 4 ghz single core

512mb(768ram) 80gbhdd agp slot

Integrated card extreme graphics 2 (circa 2003)

http://h18000. Www1.

If anyone should know, i have a powerful laptop already and i don't want to kill it by hours of basic stuff this old desktop can do.

Which 20 Inch Tft Screen ?

I'm looking to get rid of my ancient 17" crt and get a nice new 20" tft for work. I've been doing i fair bit of research, i considered the option of a dual 17" setup but so far haven't seen any 17" tfts which i think are suitable. I have returned to my original plan to get one 20" screen. Here is my list:

>> Apple 20" cinema display - £699
>> Viewsonic vp201b - £648. 50
>> Iiyama prolite 551s - £643. 21
>> Lacie photon 20 blue - £627. 17

(The apple site states that cinema display can be used with pc, does anyone have any experience of this?)
