    Hi all,

    Recently bought some new bits from here (mobo cpu, and gfx) but want to upgrade my gfx now...

    my PC now is

    X58AUD3R Mobo
    i7 930 cpu
    520w Corsair HX Modular PSU
    4550 HD Radeon 512mb Gfx

    So you can see why I wanna upgrade the gfx card ... it was 30 quid so can't expect much!

    My monitor is the 28" hanns G HG281D... with a native res of 1920x1200 ...

    and lastly, but not least, I want to play games like Crysis on high settings with smooooooooooooth fps and also Flight Sim...

    Now I've heard some guys saying go nvidia for flight sim but then again i heard the 5870s are good for it now from ati... but Im also not gonna be just playing flight sim...

    I just had a look at the price of the 5870s - 300 quid is too much for me, I'd be looking at £200 tops I guess, any more is burning unt hole I think!

    Any help please?
