hey all,

i've been looking for a couple of parts and i'd like to know if they're worth investing at or not.

first would be a new GPU. i'm now using a Powercolor HD5770 (v2) and i was thinking of getting an MSI R7850 1GD5/OC
@150 EU

the second part would be an Iiyama E2480HS or E2481HS to replace an LG Flatron W2253TQ

well that'd be all. what do you think of those two upgrades? (if you consider them as such)

tnx in advance

The 7850 will be a good upgrade to a 5770, they are worlds apart. Your current 750W PSU will be perfectly fine for that.

As far as LCD's go, a lot of it is personal preference. Everyone is going to throw their 2 cents in to what they think is best. Kind of like keyboards, mice, headphones. All of those output or input devices have a lot of room for argument. PC Components have benchmarks you can go by. Granted LCD's have performance reviews, but it is all subject to everyone's perception.
