Hey all, I just wanted to get some opinions on the best processors and graphics cards to run Mass Effect 2 on a 1680 x 1050 resolution. However I am on a budget of $150-$200 for the cost of the graphics card and processor combined. Also, I've already looked at the benchmark charts for Mass Effect 2, I'm just asking you guys to give me your opinion on the best "bang for your buck" graphics cards and processors.

The combined price for both the graphics card and processor must be under $200!

Thanks in advance!

leaving you with about 100 -150 for a gpu

which means either a gts 450 or ati 5770

i prefer the gts450 myself , this is what i use at 139.99 w/ 20 dollar rebate

a good 5770 would be this same price same rebate but not free shipping
