Thank you very much for the replies. I was not expecting such help and so fast! I think I will get a 7870 LE as suggested. I am not worried about power consumption as, from what I have calculated, a 700W PSU should more than suffice. Pardon my ignorance however, but how does one tell the difference between a 7870 and a 7870 LE? Or are they one and the same? I have been out of the hardware 'game' several years, so this is all fairly foreign to me, and I never came accross the term LE. I would like to shop around for prices, but $250 isn't anything that is going to scare me away, so I may just go with the Sapphire card linked.
