Well I am not OCing it, so that is out of the question. I'll look into the 480 requirements and such more and see if I can handle it. Probably just going to stick with my current rig though, given that reviews compare the 5870 to the 480 rather closely and the 5870 didn't wow me at all.
I gots one of them high powered gaming computers with an EVGA GTX 480 video thingy and a Q9550 processing device and also one of them Windows 7 64 operating programs with 4GB of some Corsair 1033 DDR2 ram.
