  1. What is your full system specs?What power supply do you have?Monitor resoultion?

    Depending on what your specs are i would say the 5770 is the better deal.But their are better cards if you can extend your budget $10-$20,it is well worth the money.

    Also what games are you looking to play?
  2. Hi, I have supplied a link that will compare a GTX460 1gb, a 768mb, and also a Radeon 5770. By the looks of the charts, which are on this site if you need any more help, the GTX460 is definitely the way to go. Also, I just bought two of these cards, but the 1gb versions and if you check this link: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-PCI-Express-Graphics-01G-P3-1366-TR/dp/B004DKWLB4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1297359999&sr=8-1

    you will notice that after the MIR it is only $140 and consistently outperforms the other 2 cards. By the way here is the link for the charts: http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2010-gaming-graphics-charts-high-quality/compare,2485.html?prod[4509]=on&prod[4513]=on&prod[4568]=on
