Help me choose a graphics card

Hi, I am looking to upgrade my 9500GT card, I have been looking at a GTS 250 and a HD 5770. I don't know how to decide which one, other than price. Or you can suggest me one, I have been looking around the $150 price range.

Thank you so much.

  1. The 5770 is quite a bit better than the gts 250. It supports directx 11, eyefinity, and is noticabely as well. The gts 250 is cheaper, though. What resolution are you playing at and what games?

  2. I just bought a new 1080p monitor (1920x1080) and I would like to play Crysis, do you have any other card suggestions?

    if you have a 500w solid power supply, the ATI 5850 would be the perfect card

    but for $150, you wont beat the 5770.
  4. For $150 the best option (only for 1080P) is HD5770
  5. Thanks, I think I am going to get the 5770
  6. The 5770 is a sound choice for DX11 games (and Crysis) at resolutions up to 1650 x 1050..... at 1920 x 1080 / 1200 it's underpowered. You'll need a 5850 / 470 to play at 1920 w/ high settings
  7. Is it worth the extra money for a 5850?
  8. Yes if you need it. Then again if you have a crossfire board you can get 2x HD5770 for the same $300 with performance that rivals HD5870.
