Default Re: My New Build

I was actually thinking about getting this one. ASUS ATI Radeon HD 5850
Is this a good choice?
I might just wait for NVIDIA's new cards to come out. Who knows. Thank.

thats a good choice, you would be better off getting RAM with a lower clock speed and lower timings as well. RAM that runs at 1600 MHz with a CAS latency of 8 will run just as fast as the RAM that you chose and will be cheaper

My Desktop: Intel Core i7-970@4.5GHz 1.39V Stable--ASUS P6X58D-E--6GB Supertalent Chrome (Elpida Hyper) 1800MHz 6-6-6-24--eVGA GTX 580--Intel 510 120GB--WD 2TB Caviar Black--Silverstone RV03-EK Supreme HF w/ Black Ice GTX 480--Koolance VID-NX580

My Laptop: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4GHz--4GB DDR2 800MHz RAM--NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT-320GB hard drive

Even though I have heard good things about ATI, I am still hesitant to buy one of their products.
