Upgrading from a XFX 4770

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I'm helping my boyfriend upgrade his GPU as he is now very jealous of my rig. I built his rig about a year ago and the specs are as the following:

CASE: NZXT Alpha
CPU: i5-750 (2.66GHz x 4 cores)
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4P LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX
GPU: XFX HD4770 512MB 128-bit GDDR5
RAM: OCZ Obsidian 4GB (2 x 2GB)
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB 7200 RPM
DVD: Lite-On CD/DVD Burner 24x
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

The budget for the upgrade is about $150 + whatever I sell the 4770 at. My question is what is the best upgrade for around $200ish. Games we will be playing are WoW, BFBC2 and Crysis 2.

Also is 500W enough for upgrading?

Thanks guys!

A 5850 is right near $200, but you might be cutting it close on the power supply.
