FREE Game - Dirt 3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It scores more than twice of your HD 5770 and costs 40$ more. Even Though I'm sure the HD 5770 is more than 100$. Just saying. The choice is in your hand. chousreaper July 7, 2011 7:42:47 PM p94-t said:LOL. id suggest the M4A79XTD EVO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
