SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, some video editing for fun, homework, web surfing, etc.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: The only thing I don't need is an OS, I have vista already
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.ca COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: canada
PARTS PREFERENCES: Must be AMD, and preferably ATI GPU
OVERCLOCKING: maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: no
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680x1050
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I will not be gaming intensively. I am definately not one of those people who need crysis at max everything and 8xAA etc. I would still like it to be pretty decent at games anyways.
I was looking at the ATI HD 5770... http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
...but if it is overkill I would definitely not object to saving a little bit of money on a cheaper one. I was looking at that one because I have no experience with GPUs and gaming pcs so I wanted to make sure I had a good enough one.
So thanks in advance for the help, if you have any questions just ask.
batuchka suggested to someone else (looking for a similar build) to get this mobo. Its about 50 bucks cheaper than the one I was going to get, so here it is. Just mentioning in case it changes anything about the graphics card
