hmm..not sure it can actually use 2gb. interesting to see it benched. higher rez asks for more ram, but 2gb? hmmmm..perhaps a stronger core is needed to whip that much up accordingly :)

Default xxx monitors

These 5850's and 5870's are probably the best cards out there right now, and the 2gb's of ram can only help in buffering textures but and this is a BIG BUT it would really be nice to see one in a triple monitor setup running some of the newer games, like Bad company or COD or Dirt2 or whatever and really know that, that setup works and works good.

So what do ya say Canucks can you put one of these rigs together and show us the good stuff????

And I'am not talking about coreI7 Golftown or the fastest rig on the planet, i'am talking something in the vista or Win7 quad core AMD and Intel, 2 to 3 ghz and 4gigs of ram and 1 videocard compared dollar for dollar.

I Double Dog Dare Ya!!
