Is the AMD Radeon 7770 good enough for a Samsung U28E59OD monitor?  I have a Dell XPS 8500 box and it came with the 2 GB Radeon card.  Now I have a newer Samsung monitor and want only the graphics and perhaps a few games.  I have looked at the Radeon 480 with mixed comment. Do I need better?

 

I called Dell and they said no.  But I see lots of post of people using the newer cards in Dell boxes.
