nahhhh........hes using M-ATX and won't dish out lots of $$ for a decent X-Fire with LGA 775 mobo

but doesnt the 9600GT beat the 5570?

Linky read here on 9600GT VS 5570

i'm not sure what to help him get though and would love more opinions please

i can confirm a 9600GT will play BC2 on medium @ 1440 X 900 as i recently replaced one with an 8800 ultra.

SLI 2x 9600GT's and you will have enough.

hope this helps

Grab the 5570, will work well for what he wants from it.

5570 with 1gb of ram supporting 1900x1200 as opposed to a 9600GT with 512mb ...

lol as much i would say go with that GTS250, dx11 is on the advent and well...it makes sense to buy the 5570, just get a good deal on it =D

=D i'm running it as well (5570) just wanted to make sure it would fit for my firend's dad XD

runs great, i can run BC2 at medium, execpt texture detail at high and then 2x MSAA and i think 1x AF i think

runs at like 20-30FPS only dipping to 15FPS with large explosions
