    Right now, if you want to futureproof your system, I would upgrade your processor/memory/motherboard. the 6xxx series cards are coming around the corner and you may want to save for that, or see the price drop and buy a 5870 then..

    +1, your laptop in all likely hood won't even be as powerful as your current system XD

    Although having something you can chuck in a bag is awesome, I miss my lap top : [
