More about 5770
  1. Well I would love to help you but ill need a little more info, such as what games do you play and at what resolution. As soon as i get the rest of the info ill be able to help you with better judgment.

    If for some reason you cant give me more info ill tell you this/

    If your are looking to the future then go with a 5770 cause it will give you the dx11 though it will be with low fps.

    therefore i will have to recomend the GTX 260, because it will give you better fps on DX9/10 games.

    Ill check back later to see if you added info so i can correct/change my recommendation.
  2. The ATI 5770 is a better buy any day, for a lot of reasons. Of course die hard nvidia fans will differ but even though I'm more into Nvidia, I'd still suggest you go in for the ATI 5770. I just started using them and they have certainly changed my gaming experience.
  3. 5770 over 260. It's a no brainer
  4. It's a much better option if you want to try and change brands...... and get the feel of an ATI......
  5. 5770 all day, it's basically the same performance, costs less, has evefinity & DX 11, etc...

    Be sure to get the 1GB version and not the 512 meg version if gaming @ 1600 x 1200 or more...
  6. ilikegirls is correct. You get a FPS boost with the 260 GTX over the 5770. That said, it is not a huge boost. What the 5770 brings to the table is DirectX 11 support, lower cost and lower power consumption. Also, with the debut of the new Fermi based nVidia cards we are likely to see the 260 GTX end its production run sometime in the near future. Therefore if you need to add a second card in the future that option may only be available with the 5770. A pair of 5770s in crossfire mode is as good as, and in some cases better, than a single 5850.
  7. The only reason to buy a GTX260 today would be that you get it cheaper than a HD5770.
  8. Hd5770 is surely good

    DX11
    Runs cooler
    lesser power needed
    eyefinity
    cheaper than a GTX260
  9. I just duable check and the 260 will give you better FPS but only on some games so its really like what they all say the 5770
  10. GTX 260 anytime, for way better performance, better drivers, and better game support.
    The hd 5770 should be compared to gts 250 and even then I would choose, GTS 250 based upon my own experience!
    I know that a lot won't like that, and would think that I am an Nvidia fanboy but, few days earlier I was in the red camp, and boy how it failed me!
    Speaking of DX11 just do not you ever rely on that! the hd 5770 is too weak to handle any current dx11 title decently, besides that, do not expect dx11 to be the next big thing, it is just a marketing hype that will be sucked into oblivion just like dx10 and 10.1
