Ati 5770 on 1900x1200 ?

Hi everyone, currently working on my build and just trying to decide on a graphics card, I want to be able to run SC2 on Ultra High (CPU AMD x4 965):

Currently plan on using a 1900x1200:

I was also considering the 5850, but I only really play SC2 so I thought it might be kinda overkill, pretty much whatevers the cheapest card i can run SC2 on ultra high w a 1900x1200 res

the Mobo I plan on using only supports CRX and I wanted to keep that option open for later down the road, feel free to suggest a video card thanks! (Vender doesn't matter)

Thanks!

    SC2 is limited by CPU, however with the 5770 equivalent of the 6000 series releasing next month, you'd probably be better off to wait at this point.

    If you want a new GPU right this minute, take a look at this 5770, it's significantly cheaper than the one you linked. As you get closer to $170, a GTX 460 would be a better purchase.

  2. Do you know if the 6000 is going to be released next month for sure or if its just a rumor? I tried googling a release date for it but all I could find was rumors of it being released in Q4, I dont mind waiting another month but 2 months might be stretching it ,I currently have a 8800gt and am using a 1600x1000 (22in) monitor but once I get my 25in 1900x1200 it might struggle a bit.
    If you find an article specifying the release date can you please post it? Thanks a lot for your help, I was considering nvida but I my mobo only supports crx and I wanted to keep crx as a option later down the road thanks again !

    Information started coming out late August about them, it seems logical as the 5000 series is a year old.
