    Will it still game good? I would NEVER spend 400.00 on a GPU so besides buying a new one do you think its just a good option to use and and maybe upgrade later to SLI/new card?

    Not really, I would sell it and use the money elsewhere.

    What card do you have at the moment? What games do you wanna play? What is your budget?

    It's not the size of the screen that matters its the resolution, Lets say you have a 24" 1920/1080 screen and got 60fps then got a 27" 1920/1080 screen you would still get 60fps.

    What res do you game at?

    I have a 560ti that has just been in my closet and im about to do a new build (i5 3570), I don't have any particular game I am going to play either. If i don't need to buy a new gpu to play new games then i would prefer to stick with this 560ti. If you suggest to buy a new one just let me know. Suggestions are welcome!
