#1 Consider for a moment that others may be interested in the info. That is why we politely ask that peeps use the SEARCH button.
#2 We didn't know what the sale price of the 470 would be until it actually went on sale which it has now at an avg price that is $28 (8.5%) above the avg price of the 5850....more importantly perhaps you didn't notice but the OP bought a 5850, which is above the $300 limit you're trying to limit the discussion to .....the average newegg price of his selected card ....the 5850 .... is $326. Only one ....a Powercolor (ewww) can be had for $300.
#3 Newegg has Resident Evil 5 for $49.95 ... game selections are changing daily. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16800995085
#4 The 5770 is a solid card for 1650 x 1050 and below, at the OP's resolution, 1920 x 1200 in DX11 w/ a 5770 isn't cutting it.
