I'm curious whether I should stay safe with the x3 445 or get the x2 555 with the possibility of unlocking the other 2 cores to get a phenom x4. Also I want to know if there is a big difference between the 5750 and 5770 in gaming performance. Any help or other recommendations are welcome, thanks.
GTAIV does warrant a quad and Metro 2033 is a GPU devourer so @ $563AR we have
GPU devourer @ 1440 X 900? Seriously?
@Ramiraf - The 460 is a much more powerful card & you should get it if you can afford it. But the truth is, that @ your resolution, you wont need anything more than a 5770. Actually, even a 4850 might not be terrible if you don't insist on playing everything on high. It's just that, I haven't met too many people, who buy a 460/470 at a $500 build budget.
Thanks for all the quick replies you guys. 24-30 fps on metro 2033 is low, but i'm sure that if i toned it down to medium the fps would jump up to ~50. Also i don't really think I need the 460, cause my budget limit is more like 550, not 600.
