    I do believe so. My old 6950 handled more demanding then that, at 2560 x 1440. Don't expect to max out PC games or nothing though.

    I would love to try that TV, looks awesome for gaming plus 120hz hopefully in non 3d mode. I might have to look into one of those, might be a little tough for a 6950 depending on the game.

    Ya mainly Movies can be handled- Games are more demanding for the Frame Production
