I game on an UltraSharp 3007WFP at 2560x1600 with a single Radeon HD6970 2GB. I'll echo what Airmantharp said. Your GeForce GTX570 should positively possess plentiful pixel-pushing prowess to perform perfectly at the prescribed 4 mega-pixel resolution. You've either cranked up your AA settings too high or you've run out of video memory for high-res textures. I'm going to guess the latter, since your GeForce GTX570 has only 1¼ GiB of memory.

I'm leaning towards picking up the GTX 670 -- probably the msi since newegg has those in stock. However, I heard the fans are noisy. I wonder how bad that really is...

I too am thinking about an approptiate card for a newly acquired 2650x1600 monitor. I'd like some help in thinking through the issues. I've got a 6870 that is fine for my current 1920x1200 monitor. I'd like to use both monitors and add another 1920x1200 (I work as a translator using many documents at once). The 6870 has one gig of memory and, for example, a 670 has 2 gigs. I notice some 7970's have 3 gigs. For the all important down-time activity of gaming, clearly a 670 or 7970 (for instance) would be fine to drive a 30" monitor. For my day to day working environment, would I be well served to retain the 6870 to drive one or both 1920x1200 monitors? I don't really understand the issues here. My Mobo is an ASUS z68-V gen 3. I've got a corsair 650 PSU, big case with good ventilation and an H100 at the top of the case blowing out a whole lot of air. Your collective thoughts will be appreciated.

Theoretically, the 6950 would be only a small upgrade over the 6850 but since they're on clearance here in the UK, I'll potentially break even if someone is dumb enough to buy my old 6850 on eBay.
Anyway, the 6850 was more than fine at 1080p, yet practically worthless at 2560x1440. I'm going to see if it's the RAM that makes a difference, or whether I actually need to spend $400 on a shiny, new, wallet-emptying graphics card.
