Thank you for your answers all. Im not going to be running at hugely high reolutions as the monitor im using is a samsung 23" 1080p full hd so i am going to try and run at the tvs max res if I can. Will I be able to use this set up to run Bad company 2 at full? Rather like the idea of seeing myself get slaughtered constantly on multiplayer!

Also I would like to try and run Crysis at its highest settings if I can at either 720p or 1080p. Will this GPU run it at that?

Thanks also Pizzaman for your answer. Im kinda new at PC building and at the moment my CPU is the x2 550 BE unlocked to a x4 B50. The Phenom II x4 965 is to be installed on Monday as part one of my upgrade followed by the HD5870 within the next four weeks. I did look at the 5850 but im definately leaning towards the 5870 as I want the most powerful I can afford/run.
very welcome and for crysis....... you'll come very close at least
