  allanon 19:18 24 Dec 2008

Can someone please let me know up to what size monitor can the 8800GT power?. I wish to run the monitor in it's native resolution as well.

I am thinking about a 22 or 24 or 27 inch screens

Any size monitor you wish.

It's a 24 inch maxium and buy AMD's Newest card it's better

Once you have installed the card and drivers, if you right click on an empty area of the Desktop>Properties>Settings tab>Advanced button>Adapter tab>(click on) List All Modes button, you will be able to see all the refresh/resolution/colour modes the card will support.

By highlighting the line with the required combination, you can set that configuration - ensure that Windows doesn't have to be rebooted for the change to take effect.

The maximum resolution of the graphics card and that of a monitor might not tally in certain circumstances.

The graphics card isn't aware of the actual monitor size..:-)

Thank you all for your comments. I want the card to be able to run First Person Shooters at High settings without stalling because the screen updates. I note that Stuarti says any size but Robo1240 says 24 inch max ??? who is correct?.

I should have mentioned that my current PC has a 8800GT and an old 19 inch monitor, not even widescreen. I just want to know the largest screen i can buy which will be able to run FPS at native resolution without any graphical problems. I had aproblem with Far Cry with an old graphics card

22" as higher res on larger screens reduces fps.

Thanks Citadel, would that be a 22 inch screen or a 22 inch widescreen

You only mentioned using the monitor for games purposes later in the thread - that obviously affects my comments.
