    Hey, i am currently building a new computer which i have almost all the pieces to, but i can't seem to decide on a video card.

    CPU: Intel Q9550
    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P
    RAM: G.Skill 4x2GB DDR2 1066

    I was looking into getting the SAPPHIRE 100283-2L Radeon HD 5770 1GB. I am rebuilding to play games like Far Cry 2 and Crysis but i am not a detail freak... i don't mind playing games on high instead of ultra flawlessness. Anyways any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks for looking.

    If that's so, I built my current machine about 2 years ago for around $500 with an intel e4500 @2.2GHz with an 8800GT and I play FarCry2 on med/high and Crysis on low/med
