  1. Why would you want to go with GTX260 when HD5770 is similar in performance, newer tech and cheaper.
  2. crysis runs better on it and i dont mind spending the few extra bucks just because i prefer nvidia gpus

    Nothing wrong with liking Nvidia but......
  4. Plus a 5770 has dx11
  5. For $200 you can get a SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5830 which will be faster than the GTX 260, not to mention DirectX 11 & lower power consumption.

    It's $199.99 after $20 rebate.

    Also instead of that G.SKILL Trident kit, this would be better, same speed with lower latencies:

  6. thank you guys for the feedback.
    but i have one more question concerning the video card. do you guys think i would be better off with two XFX Radeon HD 4770 in crossfire? i know that these dont support dx11 but i am just curious
