I've just read a review on the 1GB GTX 460 and it seems that it does out perform the HD5850 slightly. For multi monitor/high resolution gaming though the HD beats the 1GB GTX 460.

Thanks for the replies. I was thinking of going with the COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-225-_-Product) instead of the Antec 1200. Is that a good idea, or would the Antec 1200 be better?

If i was to upgrade my case then it would either be the haf x or the raven 2. The haf x is an amazing case

These two cases here, are by far the best for the money. very solid! would last many builds. GL

and

If your going to spend close to $300 dollars on a video card get the GTX 470.
