yes, 5850 or if you are lucky you can find a 5870

had triple 4890 toxic editions and @ load it was like a jet plain...only thing louder was the 4870x2 quad that had before that

go w/ either 5850 or 5870...it is leaps and bounds better...at least from my experience

You could get the GTX 460 easily for $170. But yeah, 5850 is very good. I would recommend the 6850 above it if you can find one in your price range.
