    Hello!

    I just graduated from college and My PC is 4 years old and starting to feel like it.

    I do:
    Web design, video editing, flash animation, programming
    Lots of games
    Hopefully lots of new games

    what I DONT need:
    Monitor
    keyboard
    mouse
    speakers

    what I have now:

    Intel core2 duo E8400 @ 3.0 ghz
    4 gigs ram
    windows vista 32 bit :(
    ATI 5870
    750 watt power supply

    I built it myself back then, but now I have little knowledge of current stuff.

    My budget: about 1000 dollars. The video card was upgraded 2 years ago. If there was one other thing i'd keep, it would be that. Your help is appreciated, buddies!

    new case? maybe. I have a lian-li but it's pretty beat up.

    Also, I need no hard drives/disc drives and all that jazz.

    Edited:

    Also I need a new operating system... (windows 7)

    be aware that if you do buy the lightning 5870, your current 5870 will probably bottleneck it (might not OC as high as the lightning could)
