More about what when
  1. It is based on what is in the computer at the moment.
  2. For the price, i choose HD5770.
    But again, just like rolli59 said above, it all depends on many things, your specs, what are you going to do and budget... :)
  3. After reading several very positive reviews on the new GTX 460 it would be hard to convince me to buy anything else right now.
  4. After looking at the poll i posted, i am surprised the gtx 460 didnt get more. No1 likes the 5830 so im not surprised. The gtx 260 i guess isnt worth it... so the gtx 260 is probably out of the list unless i find a $100 gtx 260 hahahha

    Specs:

    AMD Athlon X2 240 @ 3.0ghz
    Wintec 2gb ddr2 800mhz
    320gb Sata Hard drive
    Okia 550watt + Logisys 480watt dual power supplies
    Cooler Master CM690 Nvidia edition case
    Cooler Master Hyper 101a cpu cooler
    Biostar Mcp6p m2+
    Acer 21.5" HD LCD Flat screen Monitor 1920x1080 1080p
    Logitech X-540 5.1 Surround sound speakers

    and im using crap 6150se onboard graphics

    So as you can see my specs arent good and if i buy a 5770 i wouldnt be able to max games out at 1920x1080. Gtx 260 also cant. The 5830/gtx460 can max games out at 1920x1080 no problem even with bottleneck...

    so after that, still think the 5770 is worth it?

    later im getting more ram, new hard drive, Corsair 650watt psu, and hopefully a x3 720, or maybe even a x4 940!
  6. Ok now gtx 460 is catching some ground. I just hate the wait! lol ive been waiting since 2007 to max crysis out, and in 2009 my 9600gt couldnt cut it. Im hoping that the wait is worth it!
