Hi,

I've been thinking about getting a whole new system lately, I was going to get a 5870 in a month to start off this new build.

But now I've decided to put it all on hold for a year whilst I clear my credit card, but I still need a graphics card to replace the one that's broken.

I have Q6600 stock, MSI-7235. I was thinking of just getting the 5850 to tie me over for a year, but I wanted to check it wasn't going to be too overkill for the cpu, and that I should spend even less.

Thanks,

How about a Powercolour 4890? They're out of stock at the moment but they're only a few quid more than the Sapphire 4870 that you were looing at originally.

Thanks, I will keep an eye on it but will probably be ordering tomorrow, so will see what's in stock when it comes to order.
