Help me to choose

Hello, i want to upgrade my graphics card. I have the GTX 260 and was thinking of an ATI Radeon HD 5750, because its cheap and have DX11, so here's my question goes:
Is it worth the upgrade? I noticed that my GTX 260 have 216 streamproccessors and the 5750 have 720.

The GTX 260 is faster than the HD 5750 and the HD 5770 - not a worthwhile upgrade in my opinion.

Your GTX260 is faster than a HD5750.
A HD5750 is roughly equal to a HD4850 or GTS250. You can't compare two graphics cards just on how many stream processors they have, especially when there made from difference company's.
A GTX470 or HD5850/5870 would be a sizeable upgrade from a GTX260.

But I have another question, I just decided to buy a 5750 for my brother, what manufacturer u think I should choose? I was looking at the Gigabyte one but I want help to choose.

Its completely up to you, the main difference's of various manufactures are:
Warranty length and conditions
So you have to decide say for example whether you want a card that comes with an aftermarket cooler or whether you want the cheapest HD5750.

I think im going with the gigabyte's one, most expensive i can find xD
Jul 29, 2010, 9:17 AM
Right.... Hope your brother is happy with it
Just a thought, you might be able to get the cheapest HD5770 for the same price as the most expensive HD5750.

Is the 5770 faster than GTX 260?
Jul 29, 2010, 9:37 AM
roughly the same performance.

AT stock clocks, the GTX 260 Core 216 is a bit faster than the HD 5770, but really the performance is similar.

If you have a GTX260, why not give that to your brother when you upgrade?

Thx for all the answers everybody =) but I bought the HD 5770 for my brother and kept the GTX 260.
