What Would Be the Next Upgrade for Me?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at maybe building an Ivy Bridge rig a few months after it is released, and I'm looking to buy some new GPU's if needed. Have got the xfired 5770's, seeing if that will be enough for games like BF3 and Skyrim at 1680x1050. Or should I invest in a 1080p/1200p monitor?

Well, the HD 5770s would be equivalent to a GTX 460 or maybe GTX 560.

That should do you for 1680x1050, I think.

If I were you, I'd sell those HD 5770s, which are selling for 80-100$ on eBay, and get a GTX 480. You can get a GTX 480 for 200$ on eBay if you prick your ears. I got two.

Then, I would invest in either a 24" IPS monitor or a 28" TN monitor, depending on whether you care for quality or size more. I know that my 30" is my life, but the quality is a big factor too.
