    alright so quick question, can my card do a 27in monitor with higher resolution? higher than 1080p is what Im tryin to ask. Also what do you guys think would be a better investment, a 27inch at 120hz or a 27 inch monitor with a higher res (over 1080)?

    First off what games do you play?, some games will play at 1440+ and some won't.

    If it was me I would go for 1440+ over 120hz

    As posted above is the GTX 580 review go through and see if any of your games are in it and what FPS they get.
    xxdozer322 says thanks.

    Also I would go through this review as it uses newer drivers and stuff, i know its for the 680, but the 580 is in all the same tests.

    Newer drivers? That review is 8 months old.

    That being said, the performance with the newer drivers is no better than it was 8 months ago for the 580. Most newer drivers are there for the 6xx series improvements.
