    mines really cheap, HD 5670 1Gb DDR5. It cost less than $100. I get a decent 50-60 fps running on high settings w/ vsync-on, 4xAA.

    Doubt you need v-synch on with a 5670. Have you tested to see if you get any tearing without it?
    I only mention it as mainly v-synch is designed to limit your FPS to the frequency of your monitor (usually 60hz) so you will never get over 60FPS with v-sync on.

    It would help to know which CPU you are running and which OS and also your monitors max display resolution then the advise that can be given will be right for your system :)

    @ Paul Lock
    Yes, massive tearing when v-sync is turned off. I've tested v-sync-off and my fps reaches 70+ but sadly unplayable for me due to tearing.
