Sarcasm at it's finest.

No way you should use a 590 with that res, absolute overkill.

For the price of a 590 go a new monitor say 22 and a 560ti you will be much happier than wasting the cash for a 590

At your resolution a GTX560 should be more than enough performance to get at least 60 fps in any of the games out there today. A 590 will just be a waste of power and create alot of unnecessary heat for your purposes.
Try to get one of the 448 core 560's NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Review
