Exactly my concern. I have a hard time OC'ing my current CPU, it gets wiggy about 3.4-3.5. So I'm leaning towards just getting the one new card and replacing my processor to get another couple years out of my current 775 setup. I can always get a second card down the road if it looks like the quad core will overclock well for me. Does this make sense?
I currently have a Benq 24" and run at 1920 x 1200.
