Not really looking into any high end games CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Current GPU = Radeon HD 5770 & PSU = Not 100% sure w/o taking it out but it looks like Antec BP550 Plus 550W OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: CPU = Phenom ii x4 965, MOBO = G45-870 PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: USA Newegg OVERCLOCKING: Possible MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680x1050 ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I'm used to running most games on low/med without shadows, so any anything that lets me run on med with shadows / high is perferable. I have been looking at the hd 6850 (as was suggested as best priced $150 card for september), but i just want some feedback before i hit buy incase there is a better option. More about : upgrading 5770 asap XXStavrosXX a b U Graphics card September 22, 2012 10:44:18 PM I believe that a 7770 is a better deal than a 6850, with the new drivers its performance has been improved and it goes ahead especially on new DirectX11 based games.
