Terrible timing... my 2yr old 4850 is dead, lots of artifacting and bsod's and some oven baking later...its totally dead :eek:hyeah:

I dont wanna buy a 10k+ gpu like gtx 460 or a 5770 for this old system, with amd's new cards comin out soon I'm thinkin of buying a card for real cheap for now ..like 4-5k max

Wanna play games like CSS, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Dead Rising (please tell me this is possible):(

1440X900 at medium settings I guess IDK.

My system - :rofl:

Asus p5b

E6600

2gb ddr3

320gb hdd

19inch lcd

Any suggestions...thanx a lot!

I second the suggestion of getting a 5670. It's more than enough for gaming at 1400x900 at high settings.

Instead get a second hand GTX260/4870. Will play everything at max, and will cost around 5-6K.
