My System Specs

Jesus, you can get a 7970 lightning for $400? I think that changes the equation a little bit, don't you? Do that! No question. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Sky was basing his recommendation of the 670 in comparison to a full price 7970. If you can get not only a 7970 for $400, but a Lightning, then go for that.

And yes, if you do decide to go the way of a GTX470, 2GB should be more than enough for you to run that resolution. It's really not that much higher than 1920x1200.
