  1. I'd go for an HD 5770.
  2. really 5830 and 5770 have no major differences except the price ;-)
    so i vote for 5770

    Ah... then an HD5770 it is. If you are so inclined, you can use your 8600GTS for Physx Processing Unit (PPU).
  6. which 5770 can u recomend?
  7. Depends on your budget. Here are the choices from newegg:
