This thing was a beast and still has a bite I've been using the sapphire 5870 for about 3 years now. Left it at stock. No issues at all. To my surprise, it even let me play metro 2033 (advanced dof off, everything else on) and crysis 2 with fraps at 1920x1080 on a 27" monitor. Last thing I played was black mesa and avp 2010, understandably smooth as butter. So why am I worried about upgrading? Well, I want to get back into Skyrim. But this time with S.T.E.P. and enb with highest quality settings if possible. I'm afraid the 1gb vram might be an issue. Also thinking about getting Max payne 3, Borderlands 2, and Far Cry 3 - but based on requirements, they should be playable at just shy of enthusiast settings. So, do I have a good reason to upgrade at this time? Nope. But its been 3 years and the upgrade itch is ...itchy (The sapphire or xfx 7950 look tempting.) Just wanted to know other people's thoughts if they're in the same boat as me.
