it may not be the ATI 5770 and if you run at 1440x900 then I doubt its the video card.

can you post the rest of your system? cpu, ram, etc.,

the first phenom are not great CPUs but still with the 9850 and ATI 5770, you should have no issues in WoW & Far Cry2 @ 1440x900.

If you must...MSI N460GTX CYCLONE 1GD5/OC.

I'd spend the money on a better/bigger monitor. If you're determined to get a new GPU - and yes I agree the 5770 is crap - MSI 460 CYCLONE is the way to go (if you can actually find one in stock).

well then I would look into both a gpu and cpu upgrade then. a GTX 460 768mb will max out anything at 1440x900 (not named Crysis).

Since you have a Phenom, those benchmarks are OK.Far Cry 2 does not like AMD CPUs at all.

actually I have a Phenom II, before that an athlon II, before that an athlon x2, before that an athlon XP, so yes I am an Intel pawn. The original phenom's where not good quad core CPUs.

* yes the ATI 5850 is better then the GTX460 768. if you think that is what's keeping you from playing at 1440x900 by all means I think you should get two and run them CF.
