Hey guys, a friend of mine asked me to help him choosing parts for his new gaming build and I'm currently trying to pick a video card. He has a tight budget so please I'd appreciate it if you can help me choose only one of the 2 cards listed in the title (Asus Gtx 550ti is also an option but he feels that the free Dirt 3 that AMD offers to be very appealing, but i can convince him to go with the Nvidia option if you guys think it offers way better performance/value), Anyway here are the 2 cards:

- Sapphire Vapor X : http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1...

- Asus DirectCU:

http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/AMD_Series/EAH6770_D...


Other build specs:
- Core i5 2500
- ASUS P8H61-M LX
- OCZ ModXStream Pro 500w
- 4GB of Kingston HyperX Ram
- CM 690 II Basic

So which one runs cooler/quieter and overall the "better" card? Thanks.

Similar price and will beat either of those cards: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But if you must buy one of those, then i like the vapor-x slightly higher clocks. 5770/6770 aren't loud to begin with.


I don't live in the usa so no newegg for me and the prices for the 6850 is much higher than the 6770, but thanks!
