My options: - 5770 XFX (not sure If I will get the desired perfomance for quite some time) - U$ 290* - 5850 XFX (too expensive) - U$ 500* - GTX 460 (EVGA 768MB) (????????) - U$ 365*
*Price converted to U$ of cards found in my country Yes, it's expensive here!!
- Generally, which one has better drivers/stability/durability? (ATI or Nvidia) - I've read that some people is having problems running TF2 (It's the game that I will play most) in GTX 460 (Like fpd drops or getting 70fps in a i5 750 + gtx 260) - Which one will perfomance better with old games (earlier than year 2000) and emulators in general?

Get a 1GB GTX 460 and OC it (so one with a good cooling solution or use a pre-clocked one e.g palit or asus)
