For now I use XFX ATI HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 graphic card. But I don't know, I just not so satisfy with its performance especially when playing Dues Ex - Human Revolution. Even at lowest settings, the game still a bit lagged. Do you think, HD 6870 will be the best upgrade? HD 6870 looks a bit old now, but, do you recommend me to upgrade to this gpu? If you were given a score card from 0 - 10 (10 is best), what score will you give to both card, the HD 6770 and HD 6870? And how much different between two card in terms of performances (in %)?

My PC specs;

Athlon II x4 640
4GB DDR3 1333Mhz
HD 6770 1GB GDDR5
Samsung SpinPoint 4 320GB
ASRock n68-vs3 ucc

Disagree.

Right now, it's the HD6770 that's bottlenecking. Get the HD6870, it's a substantial upgrade (~40%). Also, I'd suggest overclocking the CPU to alleviate possible bottlenecks.
