So its probably worth getting the new model,5770 and its pluses (smaller gpu die, runs cooler, etc). jyjjy a c 377 U Graphics card December 5, 2009 11:18:09 PM At your res they are both overkill. If you don't plan on upgrading that monitor any time soon you'd be better off saving a good bit of money and grabbing a GTS 250 or HD4770.
