I'm trying to decide on a card. Both have 1gig of ram. The difference in price is $23:

Saphire
5750 1gig $128.79

5770 1gig $151.79

This is after a 8% Bing Cashback discount on eBay.

Does the extra $23 dollars buy that much better a card?

Like 8% ish increase in game performance. I think it's worth it. Sometimes those few extra frames are all you need.

What are going to use this card for?

I'd honestly shoot for a 4870 or 4890 depending on the cost. This is assuming you want this for gaming, if not please disregard.

I usually get the most I can afford. The 4870/4890 outperform the 5750/5770 cards.

I have one major contraint, my mATX case.... the maximum total length of said prospective video card has to be 9.75" or less.

The 4870/4890 is a 9.5" card. But you have to allow for room to plug in the power connectors. so I am not sure if you are at a wall with 9.75" or if you have some room yet for plugs. Otherwise, you are right you will need to go for a 5770.

9.75" is the total amount of space betwen the opening for the card ports to the frame for the hard drives.

I realize the 4870/4890 is more powerful, but the appealing part about the 5-series is the longevity with the dx11 support, and for the time being are relatively affordable (5750/5770).

I don't really need a hard-core gamer card, and I may experiment with some mild overclocking, but nothing to where I'll need to upgrade the GPU's heatsink or anything nuts. I certainly don't want to be spending over $200 for a card either, some of them are damn expensive!

As long as I get something more powerfull than a 4650 512mb that a friend has that doesn't seem up to task for the simulator and costs less than $200.

Hah! well beating the 4650 is easy. Either the 5750 or 5770 would be a massive jump up from that. I think the 5 series is a good choice for you because they are more power efficient, smaller, cooler and have DX 11. While the 4870 might be slightly more powerful--it also costs more than the 5770 at the moment so isn't worth it and is older, hotter, and more of a power drain.

What is your resolution? Bigger=5770, Smaller=5750.

I would stick with a 5770 then. It will ensure you have enough room, and you are not running very intense games anyways. I think you will be happy with a 5770 and it will be less problems then getting a larger card to fit. Your power supply will have no issues running it.

max res i'll be running is 1680x1050

based on everyone's comments, it seems that the 5770 would be the best piece to go with...thanks!
