Well by resolution are asking which one do I want? not sure, but my current one is 1600 x 900 and I love it , but bigger is not bad at all,

I use it for gaming, and myy budget, hmm if i get single maybe 150 or a little higher, if dual crossfire around about 200 but im flexible

but I am not good at this, which is why i am here asking for help I want something better then what I got, but also I got a motherboard that only supports crossfire and that's why. ahh not sure how to us the link you gave me, do I just pick one out?

OK, I would recommend (for gaming performance @ a reasonable budget) a GTX 460. Or get a Radeon 5850. Either or are good :)

768mb would be totally fine at his resolution. If planning on getting a 1080p monitor tho then I'd get the 1gb 460. On the other hand, getting a 5770 is a good choice and two 5770 in crossfire are pretty powerful.

How much more of an improvment is the

over mine?

Pretty significant improvement. 5770 is a really good card, can max out most games except for the utmost demanding ones like Crysis, Metro 2033...

5770 is fine, and some would say more than enough depending on settings, for your current resolution. At 1920 resolution, many would say its not enough card, and that's why you are hearing "460".

If you plan to stay with your current monitor, the 5770 is fine.

Here's two links, best cards at a budget level:

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gts-450-radeon-hd-4850-gpu,2732.html

and comparison of 5770 and 460:

You can remove entries not related to your gaming resolution to make it easier. You can also select different cards to compare.

You'd be happier with the 460, but it is $70 or so more expensive now.

It all depends on when you expect to buy. The 460 1GB version would be great for you now, but if you can wait a month or two the 6750/6770 is due out about then, matching the 768mb/1gb GTX 460's respectively for what I'd assume is a lower price.

We won;t know for certain until the cards are distributed for review. But its worth the wait too see what they bring.

I'd recommend you upgrade to a 1920x1080 monitor, but that can wait. the resolution your at now is fine.

Just my two cents.

It does sound like a good idea, to wait for those new ones to come out, and if not then those 5XXX may even be cheaper by then...
