WOW, 1680x1050 are you SERIOS???
Dude, 480 is an overkill for that resolution.
Probably one of my favorite quotes xD
I plan on playing many,many games,as my steam library is FULL of games I cannot fully enjoy due to my weak CPU,so I'm making a new rig which I dont want to have it outdated just moments after I make a purchase,although it seems like overkill, I'm tired of seeing a game,saying,"THAT LOOKS AWESOME",then wondering whether I can run it or not...As for games,the most heavy being Crysis,BFBC2,GTA IV,and Medal of Honor.
Exactly, why settle for second best? It's time to chew those games up and spit them out without looking back, and without wondering if you maybe could have gotten something better. Crank up the settings and don't worry about your future upgrades, you'll already be covered. Another word for overkill is headroom; as in headroom to expand.
