What HD5xxx series card to use

Firstly i live in Australia so prices might sound a little wierd, I am in trouble, I have to make a decision what graphics card to buy. there are three on the table at the moment, but feel free to suggest other ones. only ATI though. Right so the three cards are the ATI HD 5750, 770 and the 5850, but i think that it is a little to expensive for me :fou: Also i have bought a Aero Cool PGS VX-E Pro, this case supports graphics cards up to 290cm long, so the card has to be that smaller than that. my local store has the 5750 for $155AUD, the 5770 for $199AUD and the 5850 for $399AUD.

System:
CPU-AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
MoBo- GA-MA790XT-UD4P
RAM-4GB DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws
Case- Aero Cool PSG VX-E Pro
PSU- Amacrox Freestyle 650watt
HDD- Segate 500GB

  1. Well of course you would see much better performance out of the 5850, its a beast of a card. But if the price isnt right for you then the 5770 is a decent card.
  2. 5770 ftw

    ha ha ha your case supports 290cm or 2.9 m long graphics card....lol...lol....lol... :lol:...is that a pc cabinet or a supercomputer...

    But I feel it should be 290mm.....dimension of 5850 is 241 X 110 X 38 mm....so every other card you mentioned should fit into your cabinet easily....Therefore go for a 5850 if it fits in your budget...or else a 5770
  4. thx 4 da help. will probably get the 5770, but if i have a spare $200 lying around i'll get the 5850.
