  2. 1600x900 and games I play are Bad Company2 and Crysis. Also, would it be worth it to overclock my 5850 with that cpu or is the stock speed already enough?

    overclock the damm thing to 3.5ghz and u will be fine.

    except the original phenom's couldn't overclock well, the top end one (9950) would only hit 3.3-3.4 tops
