Video Card Suggestions

I am building a new system and wanted some suggestions for GPUs I should be looking at.
AMD Phenom II X 43.0GHz
MSI 870-G45 AM3 AMD 870 ATX AMD Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130290
Purchasing:
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231179
Hard Drive: Still debating leaning towards buying 1 7500rpm and another for storage.

The only thing I cannot decide about is the ATI GPU that will complement this setup.
Has to be ATI incase I need (ok, want) to go CrossfireX.
ANy suggetsions will be greatly appreciated.

    I agree with guanyu21037. A 5770 would be a little better imo. Here's a link to a good quick overview of the two :

    Looks like a great build otherwise.
