Re: Reccomendations for Mobo, Asus P6T Deluxe or Evga E758 x58

I'd get this 5870. I think its a fan revision, plus it has a lifetime warranty.

Re: How's my i7 build?

Do you guys feel the 5870 is worth it? $400 is a bit much for one card.. plus it's pretty glitchy now too. I'd get that if I did want a 5870.

9500GT

My cousin bought a 9500GT, and a E8200 dual core CPU to upgrade his HP computer. His resolution is 1400x900, is that good enough to play recent games like CoD 5 and FarCry2 at a playable framerate?
