I was planning on upgrading for a long time ago , but i never had the idea of buying a new monitor. I have a 17" ol' monitor , in wich i play games at 1280x maximum. So i was thinking , should i buy myself a 5850 on a resolution of 1280 (duh , 17") or should i get a 5770?

Thanks guys

go for a 5770 you'd be wasting your money on a 5850, you'll easily be able to max out games at that resolution

Yep , just wanted to make sure i don't waste money on power i won't use fully.

Thanks , i'll go for the 5770.
