right i think i have decide to get a single 5850 and just upgrade it when its necessary as Ste mentioned.

also getting that monitor you picked out Ste.

prolly just gonna lower the settings to get more as possible frame rates.

Thank you so much!...

Depending on the Game, AA/AF can easily be decreased for better FPS without sacrificing too much eye candy..

You would have to call the online store and ask them if you can do an exchange.

So long as you haven't opened it, they should do it.

I am going to run my 5870 with my 550vx, not nervous about it at all.
