HD 5770 + 4gb ddr2 ram + CPU Cooler vs Gtx 470

My System

E8400 @ 3.0 Ghz
Gigabyte ga-ep45-ud3p
2gb ddr2 800
Sigma Shark 635w (20A x 20A 12v)
Acer 22"(max resolution 1680x 1050)

What is the best buy

OPTION 1
5770 + 4gb ddr2 ram + CPU Cooler (Coolermaster Hyper 212) [3.6GHZ OC at max)
160+105+30=$295.00

OR

OPTION 2
Gtx 470=350.00

WHICH WILL GIVE BETTER GAMING PERFORMANCE AND OVERALL QUALITY (VISUALS)?
(I play [1] PES (football/soccer) [2] Racing (GRID DIRT 2) and [3] FSP (COD, BF) [3 ]Batman & GTA 4 Resident Evil
ALSO SUGGEST A POSSIBLE $50 UPGRADE THAT MIGHT MAKE OPTION 1 EVEN BETTER

  1. Option1... that'll be better....
  2. none of the above, lol
  3. At 1680x1050 HD5770 would be too good.... As said by 'Timop' its better to get another 2GB and make it 4GB....
  4. option 1. 5770 is still a really good GPU, you could really use 4gb of ram, and the cooler will help you overclock ur cpu =)
  5. What about the 470 overwhelming performance at 1680 x 1050 occasionally beating the 5870?
    Also
    What about the image quality and futuristic nature of the Fermi architecture?
    And
    What about a 5850 and 2gb of ram as an OPTION 3?
