The 5770 is HORRIBLE in comparision to the GTX 480, there is also a large price difference there.

If you want more performance than the GTX 480 you have to go with the 5970, but its expensive.

No comparison can be made. You cant compare a donkey to a horse!

GTX480 all the way... ATI equivalent HD5870.

Oh... typo!!! :kaola: 

Well GTX460 for me. But HD5770 is cheaper. So if you have budget constraints then go for it otherwise, GTX460 any day. Get 1GB version of the card. Will serve you better!

HD 5850. Although if you check some reviews you would see some games doing better in GTX460 some with HD5850.

But HD5850 i think is slightly better than GTX460.

Your over hyping the card there friend :D  The 460 is better looked at as a 5830 alternative in my view. Its a little better than the 5830 to be honest but it isn't up with the 5850 that often at stock settings.
If you want to factor in the possibility of a high Overclock then yes it's possible to get it to perform around the 5850 area but as with everything while all the cards so far seem to be able to OC very well, it's never a given that it will.
Just thought we should be clear about it.

Correct, the 5830 is the GTX 460s competitor. Having said that, I believe the GTX460 768mb beats the 5830 overall (by about 7% from waht I read) and is the same price, so no real reason to get a 5830. The GTX460 1gb then beats its little sister by approximately 8% (I saw up to 12% in some cases, but as with all benchmarks you must take with a grain of salt).

So, the GTX460 1gb is very much in its own league - too good to compare to a 5830 and not quite powerful enough to fight the 5850.
The GTX460 1gb is a great looking card due to not being too far off the 5850 yet being a lot cheaper, it is powerful enough to play a decent number of games at HD resolution, and once you OC it then it outperforms a 5850 so deals with HD resolution very well for a great price.
I am only pointing out that OC'd it beats the 5850 because the 5850 is considered the minimum card you want for HD resolution, the fact the GTX OC'd beats it is relevant to show its power for gaming, it is not a statement to claim the GTX 460 IS better than the 5850, because obviously the 5850 can OC well too!
