im looking to upgrade my pc...
4 gb ddr2 ram
9600gt 1gb ram
im planing to bay an lcd screen thats at 1920 x 1080 and is wondering if my gpu can handel al the new games like cod mw2 and cryses and al the ather high end games.. i dont want to go over 200$(if nesesery 250$ max)
another vote for sli if you can, it would only be like 90ish bucks, for performance around 5770 gtx 260 area, if you don't have sli 5770 all the way

ok thanks for al the replys! but no i dont have an sli mb but i just heard i have a little more $$ to spend on a gpu so i have anather option...
i was looking at the gtx 470 but i dont know if my psu is strong enough??
or will the hd5850 be better???
5850 should not be a problem, 5870 might be a squeeze but should be fine. GTX470 is a no-no, Nvidia recommends 550W, the card consumes 215W on load opposed to the Radeon's 150W and 180W roughly. I would get the 5850, best price/performance card. You won't be disappointed.

ok but is the hd5850 good for 3x 1920x1080 res screens for all the high end games ? or would it be better to get the hd 5870 for futere proof??
i would also recommend 5850 if your your questioning your psu, i feel the 470 does have a good performance to price ratio but, that really only applies to people with at least 600+ watt psu, you definitely won't be disappointed with a 5850, when overclocked, it should be around 3ish times more powerful
