    Any of the cheap 120mm fan based tower coolers are a good starting point but your case does need to be around 200mm wide (depending on case)

    As for Freezer 7's, I reckon they are great and cheap.

    A Phenom II would be fine in your motherboard:

    The HT won't run at full speed AFAIK but the improved architecture of the Phenom II will still make it a far better choice then an old X2 6000+ processor and probably cheaper too.

    I would look at getting an X2 545 or X3 720BE:

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/168972

    http://www.svp.co.uk/technology/comp...md-x3-720.html

    The X2 550BE which costs more than the X2 545 has an unlocked multiplier which makes it easier to overclock though. The X3 720 also has an unlocked multiplier too.

    Also I would be looking an HD5770 1GB if you intend to be playing games at 1280X1024. Having DX11 and the ability to use tessellation would be a great feature to have. The HD5770 is also very power efficient too. OTH,if you can get an HD5850 for around £200 it would also be a great choice especially if you intend to upgrade your old monitor to a higher resolution one.

    Wow, I didn't know that the phenom issue was resolved! That is a really fab post!

    My greediness knows no boundaries, therefore I should buy hd5850+X3 720 and happily game ever after. The benchmarks showed that 5770 won't let me set everything to max in crysis, so I thought, if the cpu bottlenecks 5850, then it shall not do so after I set aa's and af's to the max.

    Will it be the same thing that i had 10 years ago, when geforce 2 mx + 600mhz P3 was running faster at 1024x800 rather than at 640x480?

    An HD5770 would max out Crysis Warhead at 1280x1024:

    http://www.hardocp.com/article/2009/..._5750_review/6

    My overclocked HD4830 in XP can run Crysis Warhead at 1440X900 using enthusiast settings.

    Crysis under Vista at 1280X1024 with 2X AA seems playable:

    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/HIS/HD_5770/10.html

    With both Crysis and Crysis Warhead as long as the minimum framerate is above 25fps you should be fine.

    OTH,an HD5850 is much faster:

    Re: Still keeping my m2n32 sli deluxe andd 600W FSP

    My rig manages Crysis Warhead pretty well with no AA but all enthusiast settings (I reckon with 2x AA it wouldn't lower FPS by more than 5 anyway). At stock graphics but OCed CPU, I run the game at ~25 FPS which was always playable and recently I OCed the graphics card and it runs at ~31 FPS. As Crysis is very GPU dependent I am sure you will have above playable FPS.
    All other games like COD: MW2, L4D and Assassin's Creed gets really high FPS with my 4770.

    A 5770 and something like a X3 720 or X2 550/545 is better than my rig so you should have nothing to worry about.

    EDIT: Btw my resolution is 1280*1024 too, if you play at a higher resolution there will no doubt be an FPS decrease but monitors are usually one of the last thing to upgrade haha.

    Thanks . I'm worried about the extra heavy graphics scenes as the average ~25 (~30) will definitely drop, not talking about the 4AA that I'd like to turn on. The price for 5770 is really nice, but as this is probably the last upgrade my computer is ever going to see, I will go for 5850.
    So here it is, duet of 5850+X3 720. I'm going to be in the USA soon and its going to be tough to get the card since its incredible popularity, but we'll try
    Please let me know, what you think.

    Re: Still keeping my m2n32 sli deluxe andd 600W FSP

    Got my radeon 5850 today! The x720 + cooler will arrive later due to some problems with the postal service.
    Well, fps in Crysis x64 (win 7) were really really low, like 7-10 fps! Its just a huge bottleneck coming from the 3000+ athlon i think.
    Is it alright, if this thread is kinda like a blog?
