Hi there, thanks for taking the time out to read this thread.

As the title says this thread is about 2 GPUs that I am looking at getting, they are both around the £130 mark, so which is better?

I hear that the 5770 has DX11 support (is that a big plus?) and also uses about half less power but has driver issues, and some CCC issues (no idea what that means)

The GTX 260, from what I hear is a much faster card, so I am really stuck on what to do, what would you do? Which would you buy?

Thank you

The GTX 260 is not much faster or faster at all really and the driver issues for the HD5770 are overstated and mostly a thing of the past. Here is a recent chart of the performance of most current video cards at 1920x1200;
As you can see the performance of the two is exactly the same at this point.

I would get the 5770, much less heat, power consumption, and DX11 support, the driver issues are mostly fixed, so unless there's a huge difference in price the 5770 is much better.
