hello i'm going to build a buget gaming system. i was looking around the web and i saw that the 4870 x2 is a pretty decent card. somebody i know is going to sell one for 90€ and here is my question should i go for it or should i get another card that is better then it? system specs: corsair vengeance ddr3 1600mhz 8gb kit 48.99€ sandisk extreme ssd 120gb 98.99€ Asrock 970 Extreme3, sAM3+ 66.99€ Cooler Master K-380 with Window 42.99€ OCZ ModXStream Pro 700WATT 79.99€ AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE, sAM3 85.99€ total = 423,94€ (i think the case would be big enough for it but if not then i will pick another one) the maximum i want to spend is 600€ with the 4870x2 it would be about 510€ this is just an buget gaming sytem so noyhing really fancy. the games that are going to be played on this sytem are: bf3, bf2 bad company, need for speed most wanted, cysis 1 and 2 (maybe 3 wouldn't know) just cause, ... it just needs to be playable at medium high at 1080p or 720p with AA thanks for the help

I'd recommend NOT going with the 2 graphics card because they are almost 3 generations old . And they consume A LOT , like A LOT of power . I'd recommend get the new HD 7870 2GB . Should work well with your system . http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150604 Also , I'd recommend getting a better CPU like a Core i5 .
