No time to give a decent answer as I am about to go, but if you want gaming on high settings you need to find more in your budget, you need at least a 5770 even that I only recommend on a tight budget otherwise it is the 5850 if more money available, but the 5750 is not good enough

That is the most horrible bunch of text I have ever looked at. Have you heard of paragraphs? Please edit it... =[

Don't get the X6 it is not required for gaming, the Phenom II X4 955 is much better suited and you will have more money to spend on graphics cards which is what you need to cash out on.

You need to get a good branded PSU such as Antec, Corsair and Seasonic. I'd say around 600W...

Ow 1080p gaming on a fixed budget i would try my utmost to hit at least a HD 5830..or better Yep i would go as far as say the AthlonII X3 would suffice for a gaming rig especially one on a budget ^^
