    Hi

    I'm buying a new computer with a geforce 8800gtx.

    The thing is: In the info about the gfx card it says that it supports "these resolutions: xxxxXxxxx, xxxxXxxxx" but not the resolution my screen is going to have (1680x1050)

    Will it still support it?

    I'm getting the BFG 8800gtx OC2

    The closest in the list is 1600x1200


    Thänk you! :D

    Yes it will, 1680x1050 is a common resolution these days.
    Make sure you get the 512MB version of the GTX thats based on the new G92 core rather then the older 320 and 640MB versions based on the older G80 design.

    The 8800GTX cards are all based on the G80 core. It is only the 8800GTS 512MB and the 8800GT (512 and 256) that use the G92 core.
