5770 was my vote.
250gts is not a competitor to the 5770. 5770 is DX11, 250gts is DX10. 5770 is much more capable a card than a 250gts, the performance difference probably larger than the price difference.

The 5770 is newer technology, draws less power, and is faster than the GTS250. Simple choice.

Yes, easy question to answer.
The HD5770 is DX11 compatible, uses less power, supports 3 monitors and has more current video/audio playback features. It is also just a more powerful card for gaming and more appropriate for 1920x1080.
