Anyone using this card for gaming at 1920x1200? Thinking about picking up one for my system. Games would be BC2, Crysis, Civ 5 and Codemaster F1....I do like alot of AF and some AA....

I used the regular Stock version of the 6870's for awhile on a res of 1920x1080. Considering I have two on my other rig it is more then fine for that resolution.

If I drop it down to one.... you can play still pretty much anything out there as long as you don't need 8xaa on everything. But most things you can still use a level of x2 or x4 aa..... with some exceptions like Crysis/Metro 2033 etc. But thats still hard to do with even my new 6950 xfire setup.

So I would say yes for the most part. You will be getting about the same performance as a GTX470/5870/5850 Overclock/GTX 460 Overclock/GTX560 You should be good to go on most things.
