Default Which video card should I get?

Both have great reviews, and are what I'm looking for. I can't decide. The first one comes with CODMW2 for free also.

No, it comes with CoD2. Not MW2. Just 2. Also, I would go with the second one, IIRC it's a reference board, easier to get an aftermarket heatsink for. Also, it's cheaper. You can overclock the card yourself in a matter of seconds lol.

It does infact come with MW2. I checked the PowerColor site. But I thought so. The BIOSTAR looks better. Do you know of any cards that would be better for around $300?

I would rather have CoD2 to be honest. MW2 was garbage, especially the multiplayer. And not really. At the end of the day, it's a 5850. I would just go with a reference card and be done with it.

Ive looked up how many FPS I can get with the 5850, and an i7 930. Is 40 FPS in Crysis good?

I'd go with the first one. I have the same card as you, do it for the free MW2.
