Default NEW HARDWARE- What to expect?

Ordered a 7770, and i5 2500 Sandy Bridge

Newegg.com - HIS iCooler H777F1G2M Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I52500

Anyone else use this combo? What kind of gaming performance should I be expecting?

what are the rest of your system specs...

but from what youve said so far, you will get decent performance at medium settings at 1080p resolution...

That's strange. My old 6670 gives me decent performance at medium settings.
The 7770 is a lot better than the old 6670.

I was going to correct that and say high settings depending on the game, no AA at 1080p.

Edit: Just read the 720p res. Pretty much maxed on all games with the possibility of AA. That's being optimistic though. Some games like Metro2033 you will have to lower settings under DX11 mode.
