Can anyone think of a better value than the HD 5770 256-bit 1GB? Is there a better option at roughly the same price or slightly more? I'm planning to include this card as part of a system upgrade which includes:

AMD Phenom II x4 955
ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 DDR3 790GX ATX
Corsair DDR3 PC3-12800 4GB

Thanks,
Jean

ATI 4870 for similar or even better gaming in DX10 titles.

Thanks JackNaylorPE. I'm back on the fence. I noticed that the 4870 only support DX10 where as the 5770 is a bit more future proof with its DX11 support.
