    What brand?
    I've always been a midrange gamer myself. Currently running the 5770, this is the natural upgrade for me

    Yeah you'd be better waiting for the 69xx cards unless you Xfire a couple 6870's

    Im thinking about a 6850. Still running a two yr old 4850 so I'd say its time :D Although it might be better to wait a little for upgraded third party cards.

    I ordered myself a GTX470 to replace my GTX260 over the weekend, should have it Thurs.

    I couldn't justify the nearly 2x price of a GTX480 vs. the 470...

    Wow I didnt know that is that automatic or we need a code?
    The 6850 seems to have better OCability than the 6870 especially on the ram
