I want to replace my 9800GX2, I was thinking maybe with a HD7770.
What do you guys think?
I don't need more power since I mostly play old games (Starcraft 1, Diablo 1&2, The sims 3, Civ 3, ...) and the 9800GX2 has enough power.
The pros I see is the lower power consumption, newer tech, low price (about $120) and the possibility of adding another one if I need more power since I have a crossfire motherboard.
The specs of my systems:
MB: GA-X38-DS4 CPU: Q6600 oc'ed to 3.0Ghz MEM: 8GB OS: W7 HP CASE: CM690 with all fans COOLING: Ultra 120 with AS Ceramique PSU: PC power & cooling silencer 750 quad (red)
I have a 32'' 720P HDTV and a 17'' 1280*1024 monitor and I might upgrade to a 40'' 1080P HDTV.

thats pretty much it! hd7770 is all you need and you can add a second one if you need more power. hd7770 cfx would match a gtx580 while it would draw less power than a single gtx560. Just try to get the hd7770 Ghz edition. Sapphire makes good ones.
