Well for $160 you wont get good frames with a DX11 card lol or even a DX10 haha its a pretty low budget, what resolution do you use?

If you save a bit more get a 5770 it should run all your games at max with that resolution an it's dx 11

if 5770 could do it all i m lucky them i m getting one in cheap but on the other hand i m also getting on 9800gx2

are they comparable performance wise and switching to directx 11 is it really worth it

I had a 9800gx2 and some games are horrible with it when others are good I think your best off with a 5770 dnt buy a gx2, it will out perform the 5770 on some games though but also needs a bigger psu

well i have 500 watt psu as a matter of fact i have a larger one too 600 watt
power is not really an issue to me right now
the problem is GPU
i want to play crysis warhead and crysis 2 (upcomming) on max or little bit lower
it should look good

Well the gx2 playe crysis ok but I had alot of problems that was when the gx2 was new I dunno what the drivers are like now, I still recommend the 5770 over it

I have the Asus CuCore running in my Office PC, no problems whatsoever since MAY of this year. The Cucore has voltage adjustment just like the MSI Hawk, XFX nor Sapphire have this option. Just a heads up =)
