Hello,

I want to buy a new gaming computer but im not sure about which card i have to choose!
These are the components:

- CPUs Socket 1155
Intel® Core™ i7-2600K

- Cooler Master V8 CPU cooler

- ASUS Maximus IV GENE-Z Motherboard

- Western Digital WD1002FAEX HardDisk

- Kingston HyperX 8 GB DDR3-1866 Kit

- Cooler Master Silent Pro M 1000W

I have 1 24'' monitor but which vid. card would be better to play for example: Modern Warfare 3/Crysis2/Battlefield3?
I propably will overclock the cards, if you guys recommend.

Here are the vid. cards specs:

GIGABYTE GV-N580UD-3GI

The cards have the same price (€519,-)
Any other suggestions? please tell me :)

Hello and welcome to the forums :)
There are only few games that benefit from more than 1.5GB RAM but since they have the same price,go with the 3GB model.You can always OC it to have faster core/memory clock but you can't add extra memory to it
Other suggestions would be MSI GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme edition(3GB) or ASUS Matrix 580(1.5GB)

Thanks for your info m8!

Another question, i will get the MSI GTX 580 Lighning Xtreme edition(3GB), but i also will buy a 27inch screen (http://www.iiyama.com/nl_nl/producten/prolite-e2773hds-1/#specificatie)

I heard that: how bigger the screen, the more GB vid card you need to play the game in very high quality, is that true?

Can i play for example MW3,Battlefield3,crysis2 in very high quality with a MSI GTX Lighning Xtreme edition(3GB) and a 27 inch monitor?

tngx!
 

The more resolution the more VRAM you need in order to run without a frame buffer issue. Monitor size has nothing to do with the VRAM. Your monitor is 1080P and that resolution doesn't require more than 1 GB VRAM, so you're fine with both the 1.5 Gb or the 3 GB version but i recommend the 3 Gb version as long as they are the same price :)
