i am in the process of building a light gaming htpc.
I got a good deal on a i7 860 cpu and plan to put that in a mini itx motherboard from gigabyte along with 4 gigs of ram.
the thing is, my monitor which will be my tv runs at a max res at 720p.
since ill be running relatively low resolutions will there be any benefits in getting a highend gfx card say hd5850 as opposed to a hd5770 or even lower.
thx in advance.
I'd probably split the difference and go for a GTX460, but for the time being, a 5770 would be fine for light gaming at that resolution. A 5850 would give you better performance for a longer time.
