    Hi,

    Im wanting to get a new monitor after xmas. I've been looking at this one. But will i need a new graphics card to run games like Source and Clearsky on decent graphics?

    I can max CSS out at 1440x900 and get 200fps on valve maps. But will i be able to do this easily on that one?

    Thanks in advance.

    in CSS yes... i think you could max that out on a 7900GTX... for newer games (GTA IV and Clearsky) you may want to start a new videocard fund for sometime in the near future(4850 1GB?)...

    If you play CSS you will be good. No need for a new card
