Dam true! these little monster are pretty low on voltage! But well my final judgement would be 5850 or 2X 5770 ( 1 now and one more later ).

If your going to spend the money get the 5850!! there is no point in upgrading your gpu to a card that is just slightly better then your current one. If you can't afford the 5850 right now wait until you can! trust me it will be worth the wait. I'm sure if you keep your eye on the NCIX sales you can find a 5850 in that price range.. just have a little patience and the sales WILL come..

I agree.. I'll wait to gather some more $$ and maybe even scoop a 5870. I just rapped myself this year, never spent that much money in a calendar year, and we're yet halfway..
