  1. No, you should be fine with a 3.6Ghz Phenom at those resolutions.

    Good price BTW :)
  2. Na, you'll be just fine.
  3. SWEEEEEEEEET :) im so excited! hurry up royal mail and get me my card! it better max out metro 2033! i played it through on mainly high with my 5770, but i had to lose tesselation and a few more bits and lower the res :( anyone know if it will max it?
  4. Have fun with that setup, awesome choices!

    +1 Phenom II is plenty for a 5870.

    You'll max Metro for sure. The 5870 SMASHES the 5770. I wouldn't expect to max your AA though. :) That game is damn demanding.
