Hi, i was planning to a buy the 5770 card, but then i found there's a 40$ difference between the 5770 and 5750, so i'm wondering is it worth it ti pay 40$ more in the 5770 rather than 5750?!
Note: the 40$ difference is not in the US market!

what resolution are you gaming at?

it almost certainly is though, because at LCD resolutions a 5750 will struggle with a lot of games. the 5770 would do much better.

at those resolutions i would certainly recommend the 5770. its a fair bit more powerful than the 5750, and at those higher resolutions can easily make the difference between playable and unplayable.

Totally agreed. a 5750 might be a good choice at around 1280 x 1024 resolutions but as you start cranking up the resolution the 5750 just won't cut it. With LCD panels you also want to use the panels native resolution to avoid the stretching of the image which can lower the picture quality noticeably. Even though you might get "better graphics settings" with lower resolution selected it still might not look as good as with higher resolution and a little bit lower graphics settings. So with a 1920 x 1080 panel you should aim to get a card that can actually play the games well at that resolution.

XFX has double lifetime warranty...that means that if you sell the card the other person will still have the lifetime warranty...if you go XFX buy the complete heatsink edition because they are some editions that come with a small heatsink that doesnt cool the memory chips. That's not a big deal but it would be better if it does. Sapphire has the Vapor-X heatsinks...they look very cool but they don't have that double lifetime warranty.

Ok, one more question guys...
My motherboard model is Gigabyte MA78LMT-S2 which has a 760G/SB710 chipset onboard, will this be able to work the 5750 and 5770 or it wont be efficient?!

Yes it will be fine. its an older chipset, but it will do the job.
