    I want to upgrade my zotac 260 so i game at 1920 like lots of others. This monitor upgrade is pretty much needed for both games and media. So is my only upgrade a 5850/70 or is there some other way i'm missing?

    Wouldnt really any performance difference with a 5770..unless you want to get 2 of those.
    So your upgrade options would be a 4890, 5830, 5850 or 5870...or 5970 ;)

    depends on your rig though..and you might as well get a 5850 over a 5830 due to the price so..yea, what's the rest of your rig?

    q5500 @ 3.4Ghz with 8gb of ram. I would like an i7 but cant really justify the price as i don't think i'm cpu limited at the moment just gfx limited. Anno 1404 and NTW are my main games and they make the 260 struggle at 1650res so i would hate to see the effect at 1920res. Will be playing supcom 2 and BC2 when they come down a little in price.
