I also use a MSI Cyclone and I can't say enough good things about it. I overclocked mine fro 725 to 900mhz with only 0.1 increase in volts. tested using kombuster for 8 hours and it never got over 70C which is in opinion incredible.

my old 4870 IDLED at 70C

Well you can take a look at the reviews we have on here to see if that Res nets you the FPS you want. And don't pay 100% attention to the Max FPS but rather the Min, as that more often than not is a good indication on how playable the game will be (in my opinion).

As for Card Vendors, if you are going with ATI I suggest XFX or Gigabyte. If going nVidia, EVGA Or PNY are my first picks.

I´ve made up my mind. I´m going with the eVGA GeForce GTX460 1Gb EE. This one will do the work untill i upgrade it again.

Thank you all for your attention.
