    Between the 5830 and the 5850 for the price of the 5770's and these are the mid grade cards?
    and I'm sure the price will either stay the same or fall by November,26...
    Yes! hehe!

    So I just signed up and was wondering if this GPU would be good with the following components:


    Case
    Power SUPPLIES!
    Mother Board
    CPU
    RAM
    HDD
    Blu-ray DEESC Burner
    With Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit but some other place actually cheaper compared to NewEgg. I'll also be playing WOLFENSTEIN, GTA IV with the ENB mod, 007 - BLOOD STONE, Riddickulous: Assault on Dark Athena, MORROWIND/OBRIVION/SKYRIM/FALLOUT 3/NEW VEGAS with a ton of very high resolution textural and mesh mods, All of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. with S.o.C. Complete 2009, METRO 2033, TRON: Evolution and some other more current games I own on 360 which has a PC counterpart.
    Oh I'll also be re-installing The Lord of the Rings Online on with the new one. What would the maximum settings with good framerate would it be? Or more of the tier comparison by resolution and AA would be helpful.

    Yes, absolutely. :)

    If you need help with your rig along the way, I suggest starting a thread in this section: System Builder's Advice

    FUCK YES thank you! What should I do about the GeForce 8400 GS in my current tower when I finally have my new PC built? I mean it has an integrated video card which another housemate could use. Was even considering getting a SATA enclosure for the 500GB HDD, transfer all game saves, modding files, porn, posters and more to the 1TB. Then completely reformatting it for use as a secondary HDD. No idea how I'd go completely reformatting it since it's tied with the computer.

    Don't bother with 8400 as phsyx card, 8600s are t slow for phsyx.
    Want a 8800 or 9600 gt minimum really IMO.
