Hi people i just bought a new monitor which has a 1920x1080 display. My old monitor was 1440x900 which my graphics card seemed to handle fine but the higher resolution has had a bad impact on my gameplay. My graphics card is a nvidia 8800gs 384mb which i got for a bargain (£43) quite some time ago.
My guess is that i need a bit more power and a graphics card with 1024mb ram. I am happy to go with an AMD(ATI) card or a NVIDIA card and have been looking at the AMD 5770.
The new NVIDIA 465,470 and 480 are out of my price range completely and aren't even an option as i would never spend more than £150 on a graphics card anyway even if i had the money.
So does anyone have any suggestions please? or does anyone have an AMD 5770 and would let me know what it's like?

Any help would be appreciated thank you!

The max card I can recommend for your CPU is HD5770 it handles your new resolution well.

i would recommend you If you need a real change for Nvidia GPUs ,for you the best suits your systen and HD and all gaming is Nvidia 9800 GTX+ .....1gb it will cost you around 130 $

9800GTX+1 is a power hungry card and produce more heat...
Agree with rolli, HD5770 is a good choice, no need higher than that, your cpu will bottleneck any card higher than that...

At least recommend GTS250 which is a newer version of the 9800GTX+ and usually cheaper.

as far cry ,MERCENARIES and bench marks tested 9800 GTX is almost closer in giving the same performance as GT 240 or 250 Gives,so if you do not want a balanced cards and want to spend more money for the same out put you can go for GTX 480,but it wasting of resource if you never gonna utilize it like doing work on Maya 3D software and other similar products......best of luck for the GPU
