My Questions are as follows. I am looking at the 5850 or the 5870. 1: Would the 5870 fit in my Case ? 2: Is the psu big enough to power it ? 3: The CPU not going to be a bottleneck ? 4: is the 5870 worth the Extra $$ ?

That card uses about the same power as an HD4850/GTS 250. jyjjy a c 377 U Graphics card January 5, 2010 8:17:28 AM Also the CPU should be ok but overclocking it would be a good idea.

Would 3.6 Ghz be enough ? Also I tend only to buy GFX every 3 Years or so. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
