I need a GPU upgrade for my system that will suite my cpu - Core2Duo E6600 2.4ghz with Scythe Nina mini cooler - 4gb corsair ram - nvidia 8600gt - corsair VX450 PSU - I play on 1280x1024 19' Samsung I want a GPU that will fit my CPU "like a glove". I don't want to overclock, and I'm not interested in changing anything else but GPU. Maybe 4770??

Nah, with your CPU and screen I wouldn't get a 5850 or 5870, you could get a 4850 or wait for something like a 5670 (though I'm not sure if they'll be released anytime soon.) Can't find your answer ?
