Default Re: Upgrading from 5770 to...?

I'd honestly suspect that you'll benefit more from a faster CPU. 1440 x 900 is not a demanding resolution even for a 5770- I game at 1920 x 1200 and the 5770 was more than up to it. I did have to keep some things turned down or off on certain newer titles but that was in very few titles.

I'd go with the CPU for now. A 1090T is a solid CPU and if you're comfortable with it should OC very well.
