My System Specs

Default HIS Radeon 5850 iCooler V Turbo upgrade from EVGA gtx 275 (896MB)?

hey guys, I am looking to buy the above mentioned card (HIS Radeon 5850 iCooler V Turbo) from my currently installed EVGA GTX 275 (896mb)my monitor resolution is 1920x1200.

will I notice a big improvement in fps in games like Bad Company 2, Dawn of War 2, Crysis, etc...?

(all graphs from guru3d.com point to yes, but I would like some more opinions on the matter).

Won't be much of an upgrade. But in some case it might enable you to max some of your favorite games. A decent upgrade would be a 5870 or gtx 480.
