Alright I purchased the XFX 5770 round late december, but that card serious isn't cutting it..... I'm running at 1920x1200, and am sorta eyeing the new dell 27" IPS monitor, which is i think round 2500x1450???

Do I jump to these
or is 5870 overkill for me

Or damn... just want for a FERMI card? I don't want to way longer than March-April though and especially not if the Fab is still have supply issues...

Any recommendations? I'm expect a 5850 = 2x 5770 right? (I have a P35 mobo, so no crossfire for me...)

5770 crossfire = 5870 maybe alittle more than that. The 5850 is a better value than the 5870 but since it looks like you need that extra power with that dell monitor it would be worth it.

If the Dell 27" monitor is really gonna be that high of a resolution, then at a minimum I recommend the HD 5870.
