Hi all. I am planning to buy a monitor for my pc because after using a 32 inch tv as a monitor for 2 years i have the felling that my vision starts to reduce. anyway.... my gpu is the sapphire 5850 1gb on i7 920 (3.8) with 12 gb ram.

The monitor i am thinking to buy is an 29 inch ultrawide lg 2560x1080 with 2 hdmi ports

I am using the computer mostly for movies, cs, pubg mobile and youtube. My question is this.. will my gpu display this resolution? (2560x1080) If yes... on what port? hdmi? dvi?dp? and what will be the max frame rates that can produce? Right now on the 32inch while playing pubg on 1920x1080 is around 53-58 fps. the monitor i am about to buy has amd freesync... any luck i will see in a game 60fps plus on 2560x1080 (if supported) .

So... can this old gpu and hdmi port support this resolution and high frame rates (on light games afcourse)?? maybe i need to look for a monitor with display port instead only hdmi??

Thanks in advance and i am looking forward for your support!

does the card have an hdmi port? if so then yes. as stated gaming is not really an option on that. but just for desktop browsing/programming then you are fine.

i am really low on bugdet so i can't upgrade my gpu. Till now playing zula cs and pubgmobile i have no issues. Yes it has hdmi port . But if i am not mistaken it has hdmi v 1.3 and i red somewhere that it does not support resolutions greater than 1920x 1080.
And havent found any posts about hd5850 users displeying on ultrawides monitor.
