As with many people I'm tempted to try my luck at one of those korean 27" monitors. The Shimian/Catleap etc etc can be had for around 200 notes delivered! But a few concerns have come about since considering one. It doesn't seem to be as simple as getting a new monitor...
With such a high-res monitor, am I right in thinking it'll push my 6850 to it's limits during gameplay and extensive photoshop use? I'm sure a 7950 would run it nicely but then it'll be more power hungry than the 6850... so would I then also need to upgrade my PSU to a higher rated one? (I have a 520w corsair unit I've used for the last 6years.)
Seems like a vicious circle this.
Old parts are not a problem as I could either sell them on easily enough or simply keep them for a smaller bedroom system.
