Although OT to my topic, what's a good value card on the ATI side?
I've only had it a week, but so far I'm finding the XFX Ultra Overclocked Edition Radeon HD 7770 to be a very good-performing value card in the midrange segment. It's about $150 or so. I'm not playing anything super high end, but it's happily eaten everything I've thrown at it including Crysis (the original) and Diablo III, only ramping up its fan to barely-audible levels during the former and not at all during the latter.
I haven't tried Skyrim but have been meaning to just for giggles. But my old 3 GHz Core 2 Duo would probably make for a bad test as I always heard Skyrim is very CPU sensitive.
