just a note:
This HD5770 is only $13 more initially, and actually $2 cheaper after rebate

indeed, i was thinking about that aswell, thanks for your input

+1 to the 5770 suggestion.
If you haven't ordered yet, I noticed that the PSU/HDD combo isn't available. Sadly, it appears the Samsung Spinpoint F3 is out of stock, which is a great drive.
As an alternative, using the same PSU, you could get this combo for the same price. WD drives are also very good.

the f3 1TB is still in stock, and there is this combo for $119 ($20 more than the 500GB)

thanks for the suggestions :O

uhm well if u arent running dx 11 games and arent worried about power consumption go with 4870 its cheaper performs a tad bit better then 5770
Sep 17, 2010, 6:11 AM
thanks for all the help and input, ill let you all know if it works out

^ The ASUS HD 5750 that I had linked was priced at around $108 before rebates, but now is jumped back to $124 and at this price, it is not a better buy like others have said...
$10 coupon code: TOUCHDOWN
Or the one from newegg
$10 off with promo code VGA577873, ends 9/17
But for WoW, even the HD 4870 would be a good choice...
