You should still be fine as far as power is concerned. You probably will not get the highest settings in graphically intensive games, but you will definitely be able to play them at decent settings.

$150 for them is decent. You could probably sell them for a bit more online, but after the shipping costs and seller fees, you'd most likely end up with less.

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100281-3SR Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity

considering getting that now and the monitors later down the road, would my current PSU hand that?

everywhere i look it says the Power Req are 500W, though i know its more about Amps then Watts... *Le Sigh*

No one is arguing. Get that through your head.

I don't make anyone look stupid. They usually do a good job of that themselves.

There's no opinion - you're spewing ridiculous claims that have no fact or merit. Perhaps if you get your facts straight I could stop calling you out.

Foothead, im not flashing bios on a 5850 lol. i dont want to fool with it.

and i doubt a 5850 would be able to play any game at high settings, a 5870 only got 35Fps in HAWX at that rez.

go Big or GTFO in my opinion.

THOUGH if you can find me some benchmarks to prove a Elcheepo Powercolor 5850 could handle it on triple 22s/24s i would be be happy to see. and perhaps save me $


EDIT 2:

this is my current Exact monitor.
http://www.cowboom.com/product/117544

i beleive this is as identical as i can find spec wise as to match my current screen so then id only have to get 2 monitors, to cut down on cost.

Go with the D955XCS. It has two PCI-E slots.

So you can add another card at a later date for more PPD's!

I'm just gonna swap out my 9500GT for a GTX 460 and stick the 9500GT in my second machine.

I'll catch you up!
