For $200?

Does DX11 matter to you?

If so, then the 5770 is the way to go. If not, then its the 4850 x2.



The 4850 x2 is an awesome card. Definitely the best you will get for under $250.

unless I missed something, we are skipping one of the most important parts of the equation, his resolution, and even beyond that the resolution he may have plans on having in the near future...

the other important part missing so far is the power supply, with the kinds of cards we're suggesting plan on spending at least third of the price of the video card for a quality power supply that can run it, and the system as a whole, adequately...
