CHEAP was my main concern and from what i've read the 5700 Ultra can keep up until i can get a 6800GT down the road.

Gonna use my old MOBO/Porcessor to build another bot comp so i will put the 5700 Ultra into that and get a 6800GT or maybe 6600GT depends on price...

I have 2700 and everyone wants me to get 3200 but I dont see a huge performance gain in it.

BTW i would rate that comp a B+, a bit above average.
