Default Re: 8800GTS 512 Replacement for Bad Company 2 smoothness

Cheers for the info.

I checked out the 5850 and it looks good, I've never had an ATi in my life but I've always gone with what I've known.

I toyed with the idea of just the GFX card until I looked back over the compatibility of my current motherboard and it will actually take the Q9400 processor.

So, after some enquiries (luckily, I'm a Systems Engineer, so I deal with a lot of hardware companies) I've managed to find a Q9400 for 133 and an HD5850 for 209 total of 342 ($521).

It's more than my original idea, but I'm guessing it will last me longer, just until after the wedding maybe....
