If you haven't bought the PSU yet, maybe look into a different one. However, as far as core components, you should be more than happy, and capable of running just about anything at Highest quality, save for some of the new DX11 games, but those would still be playable at Medium settings.

Nice, looking forward to playing some good games

Just after purchased the PSU, it was either that or cx400 on my budget, so I got that one because of the extra watts and its 80+ so shouldnt be too bad. Going to buy fallout 3 its £10 on Amazon and have not played it on any platform. Also have to try BC2 same situation with it!
Must get some pictures up when I can be ass'd to do take them

Whats the best cheap 5770, HIS HD?

Can this be overclocked?

I've never never bought from HIS, but the best 5770 companies seem to be ASUS Sapphire and MSI.

HIS has good cooling most of the time, but I would rather have a Sapphire, if it were me.

It will boot, but it will run in crappy resolution.
