First off, a heads up for a GREAT game (based on my experience on ME1)
MASS EFFECT 2 is $36.99 at amazon

it's actually $46.99, but when you pre-order they give you a $10 credit towards a future game purchase, you also get "inferno armor" for in-game use
I'm saving my $10 credit for starcraft 2. 2010 is going to be a killer gaming year
Now to my actual question. I bought a XFX Juniper XT hd5770 about a month ago.


and i've been playing ME1 to prepare for ME2 in January. I game at 1920x1200 and I assumed that my new card would take care of ME1 no problem, except that I've notice that the game sometimes stutters (everything turned up to MAX). Is ME2 way more graphically intense than ME1 cuz if so.... i chose the wrong card?
Do I need to pony up for a 5850 if i want the full experience?

ME2 should play fine on a 5770. if anything is the issue, it's probably the processor. i have no idea how well either game multithreads, but it's rare for a game designed for the 360's capabilities to be very GPU limited on PC.
