Hello,

I've got a choice of three cards... and I have a Core 2 Quad Q8300, 4 GB RAM and WIndows 7 OS. Which is the best choice of Graphics card, as they seem to be quite similar in terms of performance?

Well If dx 11 is importain, the 5770 will be the choice. If all out performance is the goal, then the 4870 will be the choice.

Although i recommend the 5770 as there not to much of a difference between the 2.

Agree with warmon6, don't look back for an old tech, the newer 5xxx cards are better, less heat, less power consumption and dx11. the card will be great with your current rig.
