  1. ^ Could you tell the correct model number of your CPU and the power supply...

    As for the GTX 260, it is an overkill for your resolution...Get a cheap HD 4850 for now and then when you buy the 1080p TV, get a new graphics card then...And by that time, there will be newer, faster graphics cards from both ATI and Nvidia...
  2. thank you,great idea,which ati gpu would you go for?the 4850 or the 4770? i have looked at these too and am not sure,i would like to play games like crysis,wolfenstien,call of duty etc.
  3. Get which ever is cheaper...Both are very good...
    The 4770 consumes very less power so if the price difference is very less, then get that...
  4. I agree get a cheap card now then upgrade. Honestly at that resolution a cheap 9600gso would do the trick.

  5. ^+1. For $35 can't be beat.

    2OP: WHAT PSU? List brand and specs.
