Between the two, which is the better buy. XFX Radeon HD 5770 Video Card - 1GB GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0, CrossFireX Ready, or the XFX Radeon HD 4890 Video Card - 1024MB DDR5, PCI Express 2.0 x16, CrossFireX Ready. I am open for suggestion on the purchase of a video card in the less than $200.00 range.

HD4890 is a better buy IMO.
Performance wise HD 5770 is comparable to HD4870.But It offers a feature that 480 doesn't.
HD 5770 is DX11 compatible card.

IF DX11 is not a big thing for you then get the 4890 otherwise 5770.

If you are not doing any hardcore gaming, the 128bit vs 256bit argument won't really apply to you, and the 5770 with DX11 and all the that it brings would be a better long term purchase.
