I was wanting to purchase a QNIX 2560x1440 monitor for use as my main monitor and i own a asus 23" 1920x180 as my secondary. I know that my GPU wont get very good frames on a 2560x1440 monitor but i am planning to upgrade sometime down the line and want to future proof my monitor.
Is the 7870's 2gb vram have enough memory to run a game on the 2560x1440 while having a twitch steam/ netflix on the other monitor? Will is reduce the performance on the game im play significantly? Are there other factors that may bottle neck something like this as well?
Would it be silly to buy the monitor and just use the 1920x1080 setting in games where i run into performance issue? or should i really just buy a 1920x1080 and upgrade when i have a new GPU.
