Hello, I need suggestion about replacing the EVGA 8800GTS 320m. I definitely not going to use Nvidia graphic card again because all the bad experenice with it. The new graphic card price range between 100~300$ would be great. I use it for mainly for gaming and video editing. I was thinking about getting Gigabyte Radeon Ud HD 5770;however I would like to know other people opinion. Here is my computer setup now:

Q6600 2.4G(using at overclocked@3.0G)
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R
OCZ XTC Platinum Rev2 DDR2 1x2G
EVGA 8800GTS 320M
OCZ Gaming power supply 700W
7 HDDs raid0+1 with EX8450 raid card
My screen is running @ 2048*1152

Thank you.

*Edit:p rice between 100~250$ would be more close to my circumstance

Don't waste that power supply mate! If you have $300 to spend, don't take anything but an HD5850. Its performance is more than 200% of an 8800GTS, and you won't regret it.

HD5850 would be a bit overprice here. I live in Vancouver, Canada. The tax here is 12.5%
the cheapest 5850 I can get here would be about ~329$, with tax would be almost 400$
Maybe I should change the price range..how about between 100~250$?

HD5830 then. Honestly anything slower is going to be a waste, especially with your large monitor.
