Default Finally bit the bullet...

And got the HIS 5770 for $129.99 after MIR, a 2.5" to 3.5" HDD adapter, 2x1GB Crucial DDR3 1333 which will bring me to 6GB total for my rig, and this Cooler Master HSF. Really lookin' forward to it all arriving.

What pushed me over on the 5770 is when I realised it perform comparably (trades blows) with the GTX260 Core 216... I had one of 'em and loved the performance.

Anyhow, It'll probably be here first part of next week. I'll report once I've got it all thrown together.
