Howdy, I am running a CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1001 Intel Core i7 920(2.66GHz), 6GB DDR3, Saphire ATI Radeon HD 4850 X2 512mb of DDR3, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

I was wondering about a good graphics card upgrade for this machine? I can run just about everything at max settings except Crysis but hey new stuff is coming out!

What would you all recommend?

Don't want to break the bank but any advice would be mucho appreciated!

Your current card is just as good as an HD5850, which is $300. If you buy the next-in-line card, the HD5870, you won't see much improvement, and $400 will be a sort of waste.

If you really want the best-of-the-best, the HD5970 for $600 is out.
