I'm building a mid-range gaming rig, and I have chosen the ATI Radeon HD 5770 as my card of choice (power vs. price). However, I have run into a large amount of confusion as to what version of the 5770 to buy. Here are the options I'm considering.
1. MSI Hawk
2. HIS IceQ Turbo
3. Gigabyte Super Overclock
4. Sapphire 100283L
5. HIS H577FK1GD
6. XFX HD-577A-ZNFC
Also, in case anyone needs it, here are my system specs:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 RAM
500 GB Western Digital 7200 RPM Gaming Rig
NZXT M59 or NZXT Vulcan Case
hec X-Power Pro 600 600W (PSU)
P.S. If you think there is a better card than one listed above, please tell me.
If you're on a budget and are going to overclock moderately(not going for insane volt-mods) then you should not consider the MSI because the 5770s generally run cool and overclock well without heat issues.

Thanks, chose the Sapphire. Cheap, reference, and good reviews.
