What are you doing with the computer?
Gaming and programming. But, I don't really care about faster visual studio compile times while I'm at home. I work enough at work, I try to avoid working at home as much as possible. Gaming, web browsing, and occasional video streaming is what it'll be used for most of the time.
Sounds pretty unanimous to go for the 5870, which is what I was wanting to do anyways.
I haven't done a build for a few years and when I was looking into everything I started hearing people mention the current GPU's being fast enough where the CPU was limiting frame rates. I could care less about hitting 100FPS in games, but as I mentioned before, I would eventually like to run eyefinity and possibly pick up a second card in maybe 6 months. I just don't want to be held back by the CPU, which doesn't sound like I will be.
Thanks for all the help.
