My GTX460SE is plenty fast and reliable for my current resolution even on the newest games (1920x1200), i have Three, a 24" main, 19" secondary and a 42" 3rd (only for watching movies)...

This is a two part question;

1) I would also like help in choosing between the 27", 29" or the 30" (in case you were wondering the 19" secondary is getting replaced with a 9.7" integrated into the side of the case). 29" is only about $700.00 because of a SLIGHTLY lower quality 8-bit H-IPS vs the The 27"s is 10-Bit A-IPS or 30"s 10-bit S-IPS

2) The main display is being replaced with ither;

a 27" Dell (2560 x 1440) http://www.ebay.com/itm/D971T-Dell [...] 1c2e21b3d8

29" Dell (2560 x 1080) http://en.community.dell.com/dell- [...] -play.aspx
or a

30" (2560 x 1600) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] rchInDesc=

But that will require my upgrading my graphics card.....

Ive narrowed down to ither a GTX480 or a GTX570, im not interested in other cards i can get these within my price range and should be able to handle my 29" or 30" in games well (I do not plan on using over 2x AA or less with games released in the last three years, much more on older) however between the two what would you use and why?

this would help me greatly in my decision thank you. (IF YOU NEED MY CURRENT SYSTEM SPECS CHECK IN MY SIG OR MY PROFILE, Thanks)

I'd say the 27" and get a GTX 670 instead.

You also posted bad links.

Unless you're getting a refurb 570, you should be looking at the 660 Ti instead http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/647?vs=518 Same price point, better performance, lower power consumption.

If you are getting a refurb 570, even the 660 (non-Ti) can match blows with the 570 starting at $220 http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/660?vs=518

BTW... you're missing the most important part of your system spec's - what PSU are you using? The 570 will add as much as 100 extra Watts of system power consumption while gaming, the 480 adds an additional 50-60 Watts on top of that.
