Yo. I am looking to beef up my PC I built around 18 months ago. The specs are as follows:

P55 UD3L
XFX 5770 1GB
i5 750(not 2500k) OC'ed to 3.8GHz

I play at 1920x1080. I'm not sure if my 5770 is cutting it. It runs most games on medium to high settings, but still suffers dips at times. If I were to spend $200 on upgrades, what would be the best way to go? I do not think Crossfire is a good option since my second PCI-E slot is only x4 speed. I am looking to play games at high to ultra settings with 60+ FPS for the next few years. Should I spend $200 on a GPU? Or $160 on a GPU, and get 8GB of RAM? I would prefer to stick with ATI, since I may move to a dual-monitor setup down the road.

Ya for under $200 the only and best option is the 6870 but for your price range you will not find anything that can max all games out with 60fps+ 6870 can be had for $160
