I am about to upgrade my GPU i am not sure what will be my exact budget but let's say $100-$150 and it would be nice if you guys give me more than 1 option because i live in Egypt and not everything will be available, my current specs:

Asus Crossair III Formula Mobo
AMD Phenom II X4 3.4ghz BE 965
ATI 5770 Series HD 1gb (Oced @ 935mhz\1330mgz)
8 gb ddr3 rams
Windows 7 ultimate

I am upgrading my GPU for gaming.

Then why don't you list what is available to you and fits in your budget? I don't want to waste my and your time by suggesting a card that you can't buy.

You will probably not be able to get a card as good as yours within that price range.The best thing you can do is buy another HD 6770 or a HD 5770 (they are the same card) and use both the new and the old card at once (its called Crossfire).

CF is another interesting idea but at the low end their seems to be more micro-stutter problems.

I asked in 1 store today and they said the best they have is a 6670 1gb gddr5 and it's available for 600 egp($100).

Andrewcarr thanks for your suggestions i'll be looking for these cards in other stores in the next few days.

You're welcome. The 6670 they have shouldn't even be a consideration. It'd be a downgrade.

Nope performance would be same if their the same model (example if both are 7750 they'll perform the same, but if one is a 7770 it'll be better; the higher the number for the same series, 7xxx or 6xx, the better the card). Just the factory OC would be slightly difference. Personally I prefer Sapphire over the other two with Gigabyte being my second choice but any would be okay.

5770 x2 vs 5770\6770 vs 1 7770 vs 1 6870?

Which is better and why? and will any of this allow me to play games at 60 fps+ at full 1080 resolution with anti-aliasing on @ my current setup?

Note that the 6870 here is double the price of any other combination i mentioned.

Sorry for re-opening the thread but i am not sure if my PM will reach as it's difficult to notice on this forum :p .
