Re: Video Card for new rig
You have to check the resolution, not size. Even huge monitirs can be low resolution.
And go with the biostar 5850 for $305-310 at newegg, and flash to 5870 BIOS. You will end up with a card performing very slightly behind a true 5870, but $100 less. Oh and it would beat nVIDIA's space heater any day, except in a couple synthetic benches.
