    I just ordered a 5870. I am going to be getting rid of my 4870 x2 quadfire as it has never panned out performance wise. I had a couple of questions about the 5870. I know that it performs better with the x58 based systems. I will upgrade to that later. For now I am running a Q9650 @ 4GHz. Will this bottleneck this card at 1920x1200 resolutions?

    In no way will bottleneck that card if you'r going to game @1920 and upgrading to i7 only for gaming with this card will be pointless.

    Thanks for the info. I will be upgrading primarily for my video/audio encoding/editing. I have seen several reviews of this card and it is a monster.
