I'm selling my old 290X to get a new GPU, because I got a new monitor that only has VGA input. I only have a DVI-I to VGA adapter and don't want to buy a DVI-D to VGA adapter. I also prefer nVidia GPUs. Which card should I upgrade to? Should I wait for the 900 series? My price range is the value of a used 290X, plus $200. My monitor can do 1600x1200 at 100Hz, 1920x1440 at 90Hz, or 2048x1536 at 80Hz. I want to match or exceed the refresh rate at all resolutions, in all games.
