7770 worth it?

Is upgrading to a HD7770 from a HD6570 worth it? Or should i wait for Sea Islands? NVIDIA is out of the question at the moment.

AMD Phenom II X4 OCed to 3.8GHz

Antec VP-450
19" VGA monitor
$175 budget

  1. Yes it's worth it seeing as its 5 tiers above yours in Tom's graphics card hierarchy chart
  2. I saw that, but I was wondering if I should just wait for Sea Islands? Kinda hard considering how little we know about it.
  3. Waiting for next gen hardware when there's no info about it is almost always a waste of time. Ultimately, it's your money and your choice. If you aren't playing hardware intensive games then I guess you can wait 6 (or so) more months. Personally, I'd get the 7770.
  4. With $175 budget, and since you have a decent psu, you could get the 7850 if your playing at 1080p resolution, browse to look at the cards here :
