So which one should i get? i can get 4870 for 135 bucks. while the 5770 is 30 dollars more and with that 30 bucks i can get better mobo or CPU. so which one is better i wont be upgrading my graphic card for 2 years. So is 5770 really worth the 30 extra bucks? i mean i dont care about dx 11 since by the time i will upgrade my GPU dx 11 games will just start being popular. so should i get 4870 rather then 5770. cuz from benchmarks 4870 is slightly better

The 4870 is the more powerful GPU, so for a gaming system it is the better choice. Granted you will not have DX11 support but as you stated, it isn't a major concern for you, so it's not a big deal.

yes i am planning to make it gaming. But one thing about 4870 is it takes more power does that matter?

No... It doesn't matter on the additional power, as longer as your power supply is good and can handle it. :)

Raw frames wise the HD 4870/GTX 260 at time matches or beats the HD 5770. If i were u i would hit some combos allowing me to land a GTX 460 ^^ HD 4870 is still a decent card w.r.t HD 5770 but for me it's a tad inefficient
