Ok. So I want to play games on 1920x1080 resolution.....I am not sure whether I should buy a card which can just run at that resolution or a card which can run at that resolution with MAX AA/AF.

I having thinking about the 5770 and 58 series and quite clueless........

Some INFO on the card:
The 5870 and the 5850 both use Cypress cores, and the 5770 uses a Juniper core. The breakdown is as follows:

Core Clock: 850MHz (5870), 725MHz (5850), 850MHz (5770)
Mem Clock: 1200MHz (5870), 1000MHz (5850), 1200MHz (5770)
Mem interface: 256bit (5870), 256bit (5850), 128bit (5770)
Shader units: 1600 (5870), 1440 (5850), 800 (5770)

So Please Gimmi some good suggestions thanks!

Tell us your full system specs...
CPU? RAM? PSU? MOBO? Monitor? Budget?

From those 3 cards above, HD5870 is the winner...

OK CPU - I3-550
Ram-2x2GB corsair DDR3 240pin XMS
PSU-A Corsair HX modular 620walts
Monitor-BenQ 21.5 inch V2220

Ok so in my country the prices are like this for the different cards(Converted to US)I plan to buy 1GB card

5770- $183

5850- $301

5870- $440

Actually Both 5850 n 5870 exceeded my budget.But if its good for the longrun then I may consider saving up for it.

So 1920x1080 resolution should be no problem with all 3 cards.
But AA and AF will not be good enough for 5770.
So if I dun mind that AA and AF is just half which should I go for.

I want a 5870 overall but its seriously a SUPER big difference in pricing.

HD5770 is enough for your need (for now).
But if you want a card with a longer life then get HD5850, that's more future proof... :)

Hmmmm Ok.I think I will settle for this 5850

But with this I can play 1920x1080resolution but at a lower AA and Af right?

So if thanks alot and thats all.

OMG awesome.................So the 5870 is just say a faster version of the 5850 enabling it to have higher FPS when gaming is that it?

Yes, you can OC your HD 5850 so it can match HD 5870 speed...
But even with a stock speed, you'll be satisfy with HD5850 performance...
