the 5770 is more future proof, and faster, so go with that

The 5770 is not faster than the 4890, but it does have DX11 and Eyefinity with no much difference in FPS'es. So yeah, a 5770 might be a better buy in terms of features, but the faster card now is the 4890. Also, the 4890 is more power hungry, keep that in mind.

Cheers!
