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.

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.

For $150 the best option (only for 1080P) is HD5770

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

Is it worth the extra money for a 5850?

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.
