im building a new PC tuesday and i will post specs just to show you what im building not asking advice on the pc.

MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX
HIS H485QT512P Radeon HD 4850 512MB
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W
G.SKILL Trident 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz

ok I already own 1 4850 and ive been watching alot of youtube videos of users running crysis warhead very high with playable framerates. im trying to save money on the build because im laid off and i want to ensure that i have the money to go dx11 when they are released.

Will 1 4850 @ 1920x1080 run crysis warhead or should i just grab the second 4850 because one card will suck at my res.

How much RAM on the 4850 because at that high of a res it matters. Really the easiest thing to do is build the computer. Play Crysis, see if its playable and if its not buy another 4850.
