Hey guys

I'm getting a Sapphire Radeon HD5770 1GB DDR5 VAPOR-X soon. My current gaming rig has a 3870 512mb GDDR4 with a C2D E6750 (stock frequencies). I play most, if not all, of my games at 1440x900. I'm building a new rig on an i3/GA-P55-USB3 platform. I was wondering if I should opt for a 5830, though to be honest, I can't justify the need. I think it would be somewhat overkill for the resolution I play at.

What do you guys think?

If you want to max everything, sure. But it doesn't justify the price hike.
