    I'm on the fence with 5 series GPUs. I personally think they are too overpriced and only the introduction of Fermi from NVIDIA will reduce the prices to reasonable levels, but in saying that, I still would recommend them to people. It depends, is this computer going to be used to play current generation, or next generation games. i.e. are you one of these people who'll buy the game on the release, or after 2 or 3 years when it's in the bargin bin?

    If it's next gen games, I would recommend you get a 5850, if you can actually find one, failing that a 5770. If you grab games form the bargin bucket, you'll be fine with a 4870 or 4890 depending on what your budget allows.

    Then there is the old pickle of PhysX, do you need it? If so, consider getting something like a GTX 260.

    Re: New i5/i7 build

    Hey guys quick update!

    I might be spliting the cost of the computer with a room mate so i will probably get a HD5850 or 5870 but would it be worth getting a 1980X1200 moniter to go with the card instead of a 1680X1050

    his computer is broke beyond repair and he dosnt have enough money to buy one of his own, so he is going to share it with me until he has enough money of his own.

    That's a TN panel monitor. Dell nomenclature is somewhat confusing.

    Re: New i5/i7 build

    sorry but i have a question to ask, i was going to buy the Corsair 550W VX psu but was not sure if it had enough connectors for the HD 5850 so could anyone please tell me if they will work together, also if it would work on the MSI P55 GD-65 mobo i am sure it has the required amount of PCI-E slots but just wanted to make sure.

    Yes, quite sure it will have ample connectors for your mainboard and graphics card
