The 5770 is the better choice. It is a newer card that is more energy efficient, it has direct x 11, and if you have a crossfire compatible motherboard it will still be around in a year to double up on. The GTX 260 most likely will be retired by then.

What about the ati 4890? I just saw it for around 30 dollars more on newegg.

hey! you are here right while im typing lol. The 4890 is more powerful.

If you have a very large monitor the 4890 would give you better performance. If you just have a medium sized monitor I would personally go with the 5770 just because its newer, runs much cooler, Dx 11 etc etc.

Performance wise GTX 260 outperforms Radeon 5770
But provided, 5770 is brand new card with DirectX11
5770 is better choice as you can go Crossfire in Future that will give you performance more than you get on 5850.
Go for Radeon 5770

Good Luck

Yea, although tax takes a little bit of the wow away.

P.S your signature is really obnoxious. It just looks like you are begging.

Why? Is it the only one that you can double up among the other choices?

It would be the most economical to double up because of its low power usage, and low heat--doubling up GTX 260s or 4890s would require a large power supply and a very well ventilated case.

Also, if you want to go the "get one now, get one later" approach, the 5770 is a brand new card that will be around for a while--and both of the other two cards are near the end of their life-cycles.

Oh okay. If you double up the 5770, where would the performance be? close to which single card?
