Well guys, is it worth it?

Currently running a 5770 Vapor-X.. on a Phenom II X4 955 + MSI 790GX-G65

and I game on a 20"er..

Thanks in advance.

Hmm maybe you should sell the 5770 and go GTX 460 SLI? Or maybe just pick up another 5770 if that is not an option.

If you can only have one or the either, go with the GTX 460 if you can get a good deal. Although I doubt you ll notice a large difference.

It's not a good way to spend the drinking vouchers: Either both cards smoke a game at well over 60FPS or the gap between them is not really large enough to justify the cost, or neither can play the game at a reasonable framerate.

I'd go for a second HD5770, you have a CF capable motherboard, why not use it?

Having a Crossfire capable board, I'd say do ATI 5770 in Crossfire over upgrading to the GTX 460. Just switching from 1 5770 to 1 460 isn't going to be a massive leap. Spending $150 on an ATI 5770 (vs $200 to $220 on GTX 460) would give you Crossfire, which would outperform a single GTX 460.

You'd be gaming at ATI 5850 (or better) levels that way. :)  Which means you can game @ 1920x1080 with 60FPS or better in many titles.

I agree with them ^. From a 5770 to a GTX460, not a big enough bump to warrant the money IMO.
