My System Specs

As stated above, go 1080P or better RES. first...then grab a 6970, GTX570 or whatever (WORTHY of a real upgrade from your 5850)...

The future's bright: Price will drop a little on 6970, on GTX570, the GTX560 will come out (read SLI), the dual GPU 6990 and "possible" dual Fermi GF110 card...

Crossfire scaling on 69** is is GTX5** cards....

The first step is BETTER RESOLUTION, then more power...
Agreed. This would actually be my first suggestion before ANY hardware upgrade.
