MY Monitor Display is 1366x768 (16 inch).
If I Get i5 750 2.66 ghz and HD 5770 will I be able to play the following games-
Batman Arkham Asylum
Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare 2
Prince of Persia 2008
Dragon Age Origins etc.-
With the same VISUAL splendor as HD 5850 considering my monitor display size.
PLEASE ALSO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING-
I have read certain Articles of Crossfire but I dont understand them, IF I get HD 5770 now can I connect HD 5850 to it in the future , and what exactly happens when 2 cards get connected do their core clock powers, stream proccesors add up and act like a hyper card? Do i need a particular Motherboard for it?

a 5770 will be able to max out those games at your restolution.

For crossfire its reccomended to use the exact same model as your current card. a 5770 i dont think can crossfire with a 5870. but a 5770 or a 5750 can. for a 5770 another 5770 works best, mainly because if you crossfire a 5750 it will cause the 5770 to downclock to a 5750. thus you would have wasted the difference in price.

for a motherboard any i5 mobo will be capable of supporting crossfire.

you will be able to max out every game at that resolution with a 5770, a 5770 is enough for most games at 1920x1080
crossfireing a 5770 with a 5850 is a waste of money
if you crossfire it should be with another 5770

For that resolution, you should be able to play every game at the max setting.

crossfire only works within the cards own family, ie 58XX,57XX,56XX,48XX,47XX...

If you are planning on running crossfire, just make sure to get a motherboard that will run x8 x8 on the PCIe x16 slots and not x16 x4 as some do.

What PSU are you going for in this build?

Only buy 5770 HD, if you have plans to upgrade your Monitor in near future.
Otherwise, save some money.
5770 is a card for the resolution 1920x1200

So, I suggest you should get a 5750.
It offers greater price/performance ratio than 5770.

A 5770 at that resolution should perform pretty well. MW2 shouldn't have any issues, it's not that demanding. Not sure about Dragon Age, not familiar. However, I would read this article on Batman, http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/batman-arkham-asylu..., It is HEAVY on Physx and unless you disable Physx it is virtually unplayable on an ATI card. You would have to disable Physx support in the game and from what I've read it REALLY takes away from your experience. Alot of graphical content is missing with Physix off.

As far as crossfireing a 5850 with 5770, you can put them in CrossfireX, but really I wouldn't. Similar cards usually scale pretty well, but honestly I don't know of a benchmark that shows these two cards together. If you are planning to get a 5850, I'd either sell your 5770 and use that toward it, or just throw in another 5770 in crossfire. You will of course want to upgrade your display first.

Just a question, what kind of monitor do you have that is 1366x768 and 16in? the only displays I've seen that res and size are on a laptop. Just curious.
