I am looking to upgrade my video card within a month or so. Looking to spend under $130 out the door. Current system looks like:

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4
Video: GeForce 8800GS
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 940
Memory: G. Skill PI Black 4GB (DDR2) dual channel
PSU: Antex Smart Series 500

Windows 7 is in the mail along with a OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD to run the OS, some programs and games. I am looking to upgrade to improve gaming and view HD videos (currently very chopping and sometimes cannot play higher resolution).

I feel as though I have decided to go with a Radeon HD 5770, but there are so many to choose from. I can get the HIS H577FK1GD for $109 from new egg which appears to be a great price for a 5770, but the reviews are somewhat mixed. Does anyone have any experience with this card, or have comments about it? (Deal expires 10/13/10)

Or should I wait for the price drop after the release of the 6000 series? Any thoughts on how low the prices of the 5770 will fall?

5770 at 109 is really hard to beat. and HIS makes pretty good cards from what i've seen, never had anybody complain about a dying one when its what they want me to build aem a rig anyway .. usually they come for help fixing when they break... that said i don't even let people buy sparkle anymore >_<

I felt like it was a good deal so thanks for confirming. I was just a little uneasy from a few of the reviews I read. What do you mean by HIS makes "pretty good cards." Lower quality? Break more often? Overheat?

pretty good means very few problems that i've ever even heard of, and i'd put em in my own builds if they are price competitive vs other good brands
