Price is an issue here so I'm probably not going to upgrade.

The Asus is here for $130 after rebate: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And the Powercolor is here for $160: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

They're both Radeon HD 5770s.

The problem is that a lot of people are complaining about the Asus having issues with drivers, etc. whereas no one has mentioned that for the Powercolor (but then again there are much fewer reviews for the Powercolor).

Does anyone know if I'll have the same driver problems with the Powercolor? Or will it even make a difference?
Apparently Asus doesn't have the BIOS updates that some other manufacturers have, but I'm not sure what that means for me.

Asus CuCore is one of the most recommended HD5770 cards here so I say Asus no question!
